Getting Girls into STEM Conference
Saturday 17th April 2021
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever Getting Girls into STEM Conference! This free online event will inspire, inform and bring together girls across the globe who are passionate about STEM.
Suitable for girls who are considering STEM beyond secondary school, the day is packed with talks by speakers who will share their experiences of STEM at both university, university equivalent and career level. You’ll find out about the challenges they’ve faced and the highs and lows of their achievements thus far. The conference will explore the different pathways into STEM, including non-university routes. Each session will include Q&A opportunities, so if you’re particularly interested in a certain topic or career and have a burning question to ask, this is your chance to get it answered!
The conference will be hosted by the incredible Thandiwe Banda: TES award STEM finalist 2019, Think Global Educator of the Year Finalist 2018 and RSB Biology Teacher of the year Finalist 2015.
