ISB's Partnership in Science
Posted 08/12/2016 10:45


On Saturday, 26 November, ISB hosted the seventh annual greenlight for girls day. Close to 300 young girls from more than 35 schools took part in this event to explore STEM topics in fun, interactive workshops.

ISB has been an important partner to the international organisation, greenlight for girls, since its very beginning and hosted its very first greenlight for girls day. Now, a few years later, the organisation operates worldwide on six continents and continues to celebrate its annual Brussels event on our Campus. ISB Director, Lee Fertig, officially started the event by welcoming all the participants and the 100 volunteers and workshop leaders. Included in the workshop leaders were two of ISB’s very own teachers – Nikki Vreugdenhill who led the girls through a coding maze and Sara Hernu who showed the sweet science of sugars and their impact on our health.

During this special day, the girls have a chance to meet role models from various cultures, backgrounds and industries as greenlight for girls’ global partners - including Cisco, Procter & Gamble, AIG, Euroclear, Covestro - were all there to inspire and encourage everyone to study science, math, engineering and technology.
