Exploring STEM For Girls
Friday 17th April 2020

At the beginning of March students from Wickersley had the chance to attend the annual University of Sheffield – Exploring STEM for Girls event, to learn about how they can transform the world within Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths through a variety of interactive experiments, demonstrations and workshops.

The event aims to inspire and encourage young women to pursue an education and career in the engineering industry and create a more diverse engineering workforce. As well as the opportunity to speak to current University students and staff about their studies, careers and the real-life applications of STEM subjects, other fun activities were included such as a candyfloss machine to demonstrate the chemical engineering process involved in food manufacture and robotic demonstrations from the Computer Science department.
