Think Science

A one-day event aiming to expose girls (ages 16-18) to a variety of non-typical STEM fields through hands-on experiences. The workshop involves 5-7 different mentors (mostly women), each presenting a new remarkable technology, area or topic in STEM fields. The mentors, who are also female role models, are experts in their field (has Masters/PhD degree or are industry experts) and they are all volunteering in this program because they also believe in the importance of our message. Each mentor would present her topic in a simplified and practical way, adapted to high school pupils. Usually when possible, tangible samples are used to complement the knowledge experience of the students. The students will be divided into small groups. Each group visits all the stations and is encouraged to be proactive by asking questions and being able to examine the technology models and mockups. At the end, all students and mentors gather for a summarizing, interactive discussion panel about work and high degrees opportunities in the introduced fields, emphasizing our ability to achieve a life-work balance.
