MARVEL and EPFL's Science Outreach Department are pleased to announce equal opportunity initiatives targeting girls and boys. Registration for the science workshop Diamants, alu, caoutchouc, ils sont fous ces matériaux (girls 7-10 years old) are opening on 20 November 2023 and will fill up quickly. Registrations for the Coding club des filles in the French part of Switzerland are opening on 20 December 2023, with also propositions in the other cantons, in German and Italian with registrations all along the year. Those for the summer camps in chemistry and on materials science will open in March 2024.

The NCCR MARVEL supports various activities for young girls and boys organized by EPFL's Science Outreach Department at EPFL and all around Switzerland.

In particular:

The NCCR MARVEL also supports the workshops Maths en jeu (one hour, after school on Wednesday or Thursday). They propose to discover mathematics from another angle, in the form of games, puzzles and fun surveys. Some are for girls and boys and some for girls only (8 to 15 years old) and they exist in four levels. 

Other initiatives for boys and girls from 7 to 16 years old can be found here.
