Kangaroo Goes Science (KGS)

In collaboration with the ETH Mathematics Department, every June the 500WS Zurich pod coordinates this event for teenage girls.

  • The 100 top girls from the Swiss annual Kangaroo Math Competition are invited to spend a day at ETH Zurich.

  • The program of the day includes inputs from women in STEM and visits to labs.

  • The girls' parents are also introduced to ETH through a public tour, a presentation, and are given the opportunity to ask female scientists questions about their studies, careers, and ETH.
