About Girls in STEM Day

The day runs from 09:45 (arrivals and registration from 09:15) to 14:30 on campus, and if schools opt-in for a campus tour, the day finishes at 15:00.

The event has been running since 2013 and has grown in popularity each year. We've welcomed inspirational talks from Orla Murphy (Jaguar Land Rover), Anu Martin (Manufacturing Technology Centre), Dr Ceri Brenner (Central Laser Facility), Professor Alice Roberts (University of Birmingham) and Professor Averil MacDonald (University of Reading). The majority of girls who have attended the Girls in STEM days said they were more likely to study STEM subjects in the future as a result of the day. 

The 2024 Girls in STEM Day was sponsored by Northrop Grumman, and offered 8 workshops from different areas of STEM, including some from student societies.
