On November 8, 9, 10th, 2017...

We are thrilled to have been back for the 4th annual g4g Day @Ouro Branco events at the Federal University of São João Del Rei – Campus Alto Paraopeba in Brazil!

We welcomed up to 350 girls, aged 11-16, for three mornings of hands-on science discovery - from mecatronics neuroscience, to astrophysicschemistry and much more! The girls will have the opportunity to take part in mentoring sessions and be inspired by role-model professionals.

With this fourth event, we are so proud to have inspired more than 1000 girls in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in the Minas Gerais State of Brazil!
