Ouro Branco, Brazil was bursting with g4g science activities during the week of August 12th. Kelly B. V. Torres Dozinel, our g4g Brazil Manager & resident astrophysicist, led an amazing array of learning events reaching girls of all ages and the community at large.
Just less than 2 years since our first event, greenlight for girls is thrilled to announce that we are launching our activities in Brazil. Now working on 5 continents, we are lucky to be working with over 700 volunteers world-wide and have reached more than 3,500 girls. Ouro Branco is our first stop in Brazil. Join us for our events during the entire week of 24 September 2012.
The week begins with our signature event taking place over 2 days in Minas Gerais at the Universidade Federal de São João Del – Rei following with greenlight for girls events in the classroom of local schools throughout the week. We would like to thank our amazing contributors who are getting ready for our big events – our g4g Brazil Country Manager and g4g country team of physicists and scientists, all our volunteers & workshop leaders and the incredible organisations who are sponsoring us. Big thanks to the Universidade Federal de São João Del – Rei, CAPES (Coordination for the improvement of higher education personnel) and theFAPEMIG agency (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de Minas Gerais).
