Event description

Description

UTC Reading is working with the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology), Kendrick School, Leighton Park School and Reading Girls’ School to organise a series of talks on Women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

Talks will be delivered by women in a range of careers and from a variety of backgrounds, aiming to inspire young people to see the wealth of opportunities available to them in STEM.

This talk will be given by Dr Caroline Cox, Earth Observation Algorithm Scientist at RAL Space, https://www.ralspace.stfc.ac.uk/Pages/Research-Scientist.aspx, on 10 October 2017. Dr Cox has a background in physics and currently works on a satellite instrument that is measuring the temperature of the land and oceans.
