On February 11th, 2017...

g4g was back in Athens for another fantastic event!

Together with Campion, an international school in Pallini, we're happy to have been back in action in one of the oldest cities in the world! From bringing a robot to life and discovering how computers “chat” with each other to the sweet taste of chocolate and the scent of flowers (and much more!), 100 girls had the fantastic chance to meet inspirational role models and discover the unbelievably fun in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics!
