Courses for Girls

As part of the NCCR Robotic’s commitment to increase interest in robotics studies amongst the younger generations, particularly the interest of young girls in robotics and robotics related areas, we are proud to offer, through the Science Outreach Department at EPFL, a number of courses and activities for either girls only or for girls and boys (with at least 50% girls participation).

Please note that these courses are all taught in French (see below for courses in the German part of Switzerland where courses are taught in German). We are currently not aware of courses taught in English, but will update this page if that changes.


Robots are indeed for girls (100% girls, 11-13 years old)
The goal of this class is to give young girls the chance and means to discover and develop their knowledge of IT and communication technologies while programming a robot and having fun

This class if free of charge and takes place on Saturdays (mornings or afternoons).


Summer Camps “Mission Rosetta” for both girls and boys aged 10-14. Remotely programme a Thymio robot that has landed in the wrong place on a comet so that it can achieve all its goals.

DanceBots for children until 10 years-old. Design, build and style your own robot that will dance along to an MP3 player.
