Showing our full endorsement of the EPFL Philantropy and Science Outreach Program, the Basel chapter contributed to their activities in the Basel region by giving two short mentoring talks at the November 27th 2021 Coding Club for Girls event in Liestal (BL).
The event gave girls between 11 and 15 hands-on insights into cybersecurity. We hope that our talk (by Patrizia Spoerri, SV’13, now working in the chemical industry) could inspire some of them to consider a path in STEM in the future.
A big thank you to the organizing Committee of the program (in particular Souad Sellami, Phys’85) and all the volunteers assisting the girls during the course!
It was an inspiring event, also for us, and we hope to contribute to many more!
