Summer 2017: Materials science and chemistry for young girls and boys

The EPFL Science Outreach Department has organised this summer two camps on materials science and chemistry with the support of the MARVEL.

The chemistry camp was for 11- to 13-year-old girls and boys, while the "super cool materials" camp – on materials science – was only for girls in that same age group. These two camps gave participants the opportunity to learn, through experimentation, about different areas of chemistry or various materials and their properties, and the role these two sciences play in everyday life. The young girls and boys were also able to speak with EPFL researchers and gain some insight into their work. They then prepared a summary on the research subjects they covered and gave a presentation at the certificate ceremony in front of their parents.
