On November 24th, 2018...

We are thrilled to be back for the 9th annual g4g Day @Brussels event at The International School of Brussels!

This year again, we are welcoming up to 300 girls, aged 7-15, for a full day of hands-on science, discovering STEM subjects in a fun and exciting way!

From maths with chocolate to DNA extraction, from learning about robotics to coding, and much more, the girls will even have the opportunity to take part in mentoring sessions and be inspired by role-model professionals!

Please note that this event is now sold out.

What changes this year?

Time

Yes, at g4g we have the time changer power. So we decided that this 2018 edition would start at 9 a.m. instead of 8 a.m. We will still finish the event at 4 p.m. and the girls will still enjoy four different workshops. How do we manage such a magical transformation? That's our secret.

Registration process

There will be ONLY ONE registration form to fill out in order to confirm your place. In this form, you will be able to confirm your presence, let us know about any special diet needs or allergies, and fill in some legal forms.

Age

Is there a little group this year? YES! We have 30 places for girls aged 7-9 and 270 places for girls aged 10-15. If you are interested in joining this very limited group, contact us via the button below!

And what doesn't change?

Well... we can still guarantee a lot of fun with our STEMtastic workshops!

We will have a mix of signature workshops and brand new ones from over 15 different companies and organisations like Procter and Gamble, Technopolis, Cisco, Stanley Black & Decker, and more!

The event will run in all three languages: English, French, and Dutch. You will have the chance to indicate the attendee's preferred languages on the registration form.

As usual our event is entirely free. We will provide snacks and lunch that take into account a wide variety of dietary needs. Plus, each girl will receive her own lab coat to customize. If you already have a lab coat from past years, we encourage you to wear it and add to it (we will!).

Our past events…

On November 25, 2017, we were thrilled to be back for the 8th annual g4g Day @Brussels event at The International School of Brussels!

We welcomed 300 girls, aged 11-15, for a full day of hands-on science, discovering STEM subjects in a fun and exciting way! From statistics with chocolate to DNA extraction, from sphero coding to fruit batteries, and much more, the girls will even have the opportunity to take part in mentoring sessions and be inspired by role-model professionals! 

2016

GREEN SCREEN GIRLS VIDEO!! Raising awareness on global climate change and having fun in the process!

In 2016, our 7th Annual g4g Day @Brussels brought together 275 incredible girls, 100 volunteers & countless memories and inspiration in all aspects of STEM! The girls manned a mission to Mars, discovered the magic of mixing, cosmetic chemistry, and the physics of photography, shared the fun of polymer science, jumped into 360 degrees VR, explored our g4g classics like DNA extraction, snap circuits, CSI & Big Bang Theory, used maths and science to understand music, coded their way through mazes, tapped into the science behind well-being, and even got to create dark matter in cloud chambers... And so so so much more!
