International Women’s Day STEM Activities for Girls in Wales

adminEvent, News, News and Events

We are offering free, fun STEM workshops to Year 8 and 9 female pupils across Wales to celebrate International Women’s Day.

It is widely recognised that girls are under-represented in STEM industries, and one of the aims of the European-funded Technocamps Operation is to try and redress the balance. Complementing our annual gala celebration of International Women’s Day, we are focussing our efforts this year on the next generation of scientists by inviting female pupils across Wales to an exclusive Women in STEM morning of activities.

On Tuesday 8th March, we will celebrate the annual International Women’s Day campaign by providing secondary pupils in Wales with a fun and engaging STEM workshop. The workshop will concentrate on the history of Women in STEM and the importance and impact of the work of females in the industry through history.

We will deliver a limited number of workshops physically in schools, with an option for teachers to deliver the workshop for other schools. The workshop will then be followed by a talk and a Q&A session by the incoming Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Rocio Cifuentes!

If you are interested in registering your school for a girls-only session, register below by Wednesday 2nd March.
