The world needs more engineers, and it particularly needs more female engineers. We know that diversity of background improves the workforce, and that engineers from different walks of life produce different solutions to the same questions. If you’re passionate about STEM subjects, but you’re not sure how to make a career out of your passion, then let us help. This course is for Year 10 in England and Wales, S4 in Scotland and Year 11 in Northern Ireland.
Run by expert academics from the University of Birmingham, each day of this course will have a new theme and be led by a team of specialist researchers in that area. There will be online lectures and workshops, opening a world of possibilities for future study and careers in the fields of physics and engineering.
(Please note: This free course is only available to girls who are currently attending a non-selective state school).
‘I really enjoyed the days on Space Weather and Astrophysics because I learnt a lot from the lectures and deepened my understanding.'
