Science Factor is a competition for high-school students across France launched under the sponsorship of Ministry of Education, the Higher Education and Research, and Universcience, Orange and Syntec.
The goal? To encourage young people, particularly young women to move towards the sciences. Science Factor aims to promote scientific fields in which the lack of interest among young people is increasingly a cause for concern, particularly among girls, who are turning away from these fields too often. And yet, they offer them very interesting prospects and opportunities with promising futures for the coming years.Occupations where the opportunities are numerous, in key sectors! Sectors of the future represented by Orange in 2011 and Syntec.
In addition, businesses are now aware that gender mix and equality represent a real resource and key asset, not only for their overall balance, but also their development and creativity. However, they face a major shortage of candidates.
Orange, well aware of what is at stake with these issues, has therefore joined forces to support this project.
What contribution will it make to humanity, the planet and science? How could it revolutionize the world? The five projects with the best answers to these questions will be selected for the grand final, to be held in April 2012 in Paris, when a panel of leading specialists will select the best project.
To take part, all you have to do is set up a team of four, in which the team leader must be a girl, and register on the Science Factor page on Facebook, which is also partnering this competition.
Science Factor is supported by Ministry of Education, and Ministry of Research sponsored by Orange, and Syntec.
Deadline for registration of entries was 31 January 2012.
The teams that will go before the jury will be announced 19 March 2012!
The winners will be announced 4 April 2012.
