STEM Educator & EU AmbassadorGTI Beveren

Lieselot Van Gysel is a STEM Ambassador of Flanders and a teacher at GTI Beveren, Belgium.
In 2012, she graduated with a degree in Electromechanics where she was the only woman in that class. She started her college career at Odisee Aalst with a professional bachelor in Engineering but dropped the study when she realised this wasn't her calling. She changed schools to Vives Bruges and graduated as a Teacher Electricity & Mechanics in June 2018.
As part of her study in Vives, she researched the low count of girls in vocational education studies in high school. The results showed that there was a lot of room for improvement which led her to launch a project that would ensure more girls choosing vocational education.
