Ninety-five female high school students from the Czech Republic and Slovakia took part in the Become a Scientist for a Day event on Friday 9 February.

The rich programme prepared by the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the CTU aims to inspire high school girls to study natural and technical sciences. Look at the photo gallery, which captures the atmosphere of the morning programme with lectures and panel discussion of female students and scientists from FEE and FNSPE, as well as the afternoon workshops. In them, the high school students built a solar lamp and a cloud detector, tried programming in Python, and how to program a robot. In other exercises, for example, they got acquainted with a tool for counting with large numbers, made a gel dosimeter that allowed them to see ionizing radiation with their own eyes, or scientists introduced them to work in the optical laboratory.
