Girls, do Physics!
Inspiring and empowering girls around the world to engage in physics or related STEM subjects.
Girls, do Physics! is an Instagram campaign organised by the International Particle Physics Outreach Group (IPPOG) to inspire girls to become interested in and study physics and related STEM subjects and break the stereotype that physics is more suitable for boys.
The campaign will run between February 11, the UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science, and March 8, the International Day of Women.
WHO WE ARE
The International Particle Physics Outreach Group – IPPOG – is a global network of scientists, researchers, science educators and communication specialists active in outreach for particle physics and related science subjects.
Through our programmes and activities, we inspire, motivate and train the next generation of researchers, scientists, and engineers. We also aim to foster long-term, sustainable public support for fundamental scientific research around the world and improve public understanding and appreciation of the benefits of fundamental research in society.
We reach broad audience worldwide, including students, teachers, the general public and different stakeholders of society.
IPPOG’s flagship activity is International Physics Masterclasses, organized around the world and offering high school students thepossibility to “become a scientist for a day”.
To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, February 11th, IPPOG organizes a special edition of International Physics Masterclasses only for girls! This has been a big success during last 2 years and we are looking forward to continuation in 2019!
