Girls do Science! free event series returns on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 March 2024 to Skills Development Scotland’s Inverness Digital Studios, 1-5 Church Street, IV1 1DY.

The two-day STEM-focused events invite S1 to S6 girls to come along to explore careers and creativity in and around STEM industries.

‘STEM industries’ relates to those in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths.

On Friday 15 March from 6:30 to 7:30pm, there is an informal networking event for S4 to S6 girls, where they will get to meet inspirational women working in STEM industries, ask questions, and make useful contacts.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet motivational women whose careers are within this exciting and fast-growing industry.

On Saturday 16 March, from 10am to 2:15pm, S1 to S3 girls are invited to join them for a day of female speakers working in STEM industries and get hands-on in our interactive workshops including ‘Bridging Islands with Renewable Energy’, ‘Understanding Vaccines’, ‘Project Peat’, ‘Eco Mapping’, and ‘Moss Testing’.

Sharon McIntyre, Head of CIAG Operations at Skills Development Scotland says:

“These events are the perfect opportunity to empower young women through learning for scientific and technological career paths.

“They’ll get information and guidance directly from inspiring role models and be offered a glimpse into what it’s like to be employed in the field of science and/or technology.”

Light refreshments will be provided at both these free events.

Places are limited so be sure to book your place soon to avoid disappointment!
