STEM: Jobs for the Girls - A learning and networking conference

Date: Thursday 5 October
Venue: RAF Leeming, Gatenby Northallerton, North Yorkshire, DL7 9NJ
Time: 08:30 - 16:00

Women are severely under represented in the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) workforce. Many girls perceive STEM careers as too difficult or boring. 

This exciting one day networking conference will challenge this misconception, revealing to girls, parents, teachers and career advisors that STEM jobs foster creativity, critical thinking, problem solving skills and collaborative communication.

The event will be attended by Year 9 girls from schools across Yorkshire and the North East as well as adult delegates representing the teaching profession, parents and STEM ambassadors.

During the conference delgates can participate in a range of STEM workshops. Workshops include "Computer Games Design" hosted by the University of Teesside, "Engineering our Infrastructure" hosted by the Institution of Civil Engineers and "Explore your universe: The James Webb Space Telescope" hosting by Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).

Ann Watson, Chief Executive of the Semta Group will deliver the Key Note Speech at the conference.
