Girls in STEM Day is an inspiring day of interactive activities to encourage year 9 girls to continue studying Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at GCSE, A-level and beyond.
Wednesday 18th September 2019
This years Girls in STEM Day will run from approximately 09:45 (registration from 09:15) to 14:30 on campus, and at the end of the day we will offer campus tours to school groups who want them.
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. One teacher who attended the event 2018 remarked, "the workshops were brilliant. They were truly inspiring for the students and me."
Registrations for this event are now closed. For further information please email Rachel Burgess the Outreach and Schools Liaison Officer.
