What are the challenges facing women in STEM?
What does the future hold for us and how will the STEM industries shape it?
How do we encourage more young women to engage with the sciences?
This unique opportunity is all about inspiring young women about the possibilities in STEM, helping them to explore the exciting breadth of careers available and to discover the innovations being developed right now and in the future.
For our first event in May 2018, we had an amazing panel of guests (see below) who took part in Q&A panel sessions, networked with the girls, and delivered fantastic activities, discussions and TED-style talks.
"We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That's just not true."
Mae Jemison - first Black woman in space

“Science is not a boy’s game, it’s not a girl’s game. It’s everyone’s game. It’s about where we are and where we’re going. Space travel benefits us here on Earth. And we ain’t stopped yet. There’s more exploration to come.”
Nichelle Nichols, former NASA Ambassador and actress
