On Thursday 15 April, around 15 girls of the Hervormd Lyceum West Amsterdam will meet up via Zoom with CWI scientists to learn more about what CWI does, how and why.

Our colleague Annette Kik will introduce them to CWI's history, our milestones and explain what our scientists do.

Yfke Dulek will talk about quantum computers and Nanda Piersma will tell them everything about responsible AI.

Girlsday is set up by the Dutch national expert organisation on girls and women in science and technology (VHTO). The goal of Girlsday is to promote girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers.
During Girlsday, technical companies, (non-)governmental organizations, and research institutes open their doors for 10-15 year old girls. VHTO has organized Girlsday in the Netherlands annually since 2010.
