Summer course for girls 11-15 years
Are you a girl who thinks natural science is fun and who wants to meet new friends? If you have just finished 5-9 in primary school in spring 2018, this could be a fun activity for you this summer, and it is completely free! Take the opportunity to try out activities that you enjoy now and in the future!
Design your own product and print it in one of our 3D printers, visit Edvard Anderson's Tropical Greenhouse, learn more about programming and electronics, detect liquid nitrogen and work in our well-equipped chemical lab. You can take part in all of this and much more in an eventful week at the Vetenskapens Hus, where you will be attended by students from KTH and Stockholm University.
The House of Science has organised summer courses for girls since 2005 in cooperation with several actors to increase girls' interest in science and technology. This year the course is free and the summer course is given in collaboration with KTH (ICES), Stockholm University, Stockholm City, Scania, IBM and FLIR. Since its inception, around 2,600 girls have participated in the summer course.
Date and notification
The course is one week long (Monday to Friday) and is given on two occasions in August. A typical course day consists of two activities; one before lunch, 10-12, and one after lunch, 13-15, except for the first and last day which may be a bit longer.

Terms of booking
Your booking is binding, and any cancellation will be made in writing as soon as possible. If cancelled later than one week before the start of the course, or absence from course, full course fee will be charged. Vetenskapens Hus will always refund if you cancel in accordance with the current cancellation policy, or if your child becomes ill for a long time and with medical certificates can prove that they cannot attend the course. In case of short-term illness, and other causes that cause your child to miss a few occasions, no refund is made.
