Meet the Stemettes in March!

We’re pleased to invite you to a free event on Saturday March 29th, 2-5pm, hosted by Microsoft Research Cambridge in their offices just 2 minutes walk from the main train station. This panel event for girls aged 9+ will begin with an introduction from our eight scientists, engineers and mathematicians, before they answer questions from the audience. We’ll finish with some games and nibbles, and a chance to chat to the panelists in person.

Come along and meet real women working in science, technology, engineering and maths at all stages of their careers. Find out how these women combine creativity and problem solving to address our world’s biggest challenges, and build practical solutions by applying maths and science to everyday life. Far from spending their days in hard hats and overalls, scientists and engineers are actively involved in the design and development of new technologies that can impact millions of people around the globe.

This event is for girls aged 9 upwards, through to university students, who are interested in finding out more about science careers. Under-16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Whether you’re already studying the sciences, unsure about which direction to take, or simply want to find out more, we’d love to see you there! Sign up here to take part:

    I work for Wisbech Schools and hold an annual Primary Careers Convention for Year 6 children each June. Your event may be of interest to some of the primary schools (It is already advertised in Cambridgeshire’s schools’ newsletter this week, so schools may have seen it).

    Is the event going to be pitched to include the younger children? ( 9 to 18 seems a wide age range.) Please advise.

    Many thanks

  2. Hi Pam,

    Thanks for your interest in our event 🙂 As above, there will be a panel Q&A followed by a chance for attendees to chat informally with our panelists and other audience members. We’ll keep in mind the wide range of ages, and tailor the panel discussion appropriately. Several of our panelists are experienced at doing outreach work with a wide range of ages.

    Personally, I hope that younger girls will attend, as I’d really like to show them that women can work in interesting science and engineering careers well before they make their GCSE choices!

    Catherine.

    On the Eventbrite site all the places for parents are sold out. But you still have places for kids (little stemettes). Surely they should both have places or both be sold out… Can I (as a parent) just register as press/other?
