Event description

Description

UTC Reading is working with the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology), hosting 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 delivered by Kim Cave-Ayland, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, on 5 June. At the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, engineers and physicists are working to create a safe, low-pollution power source that could change the world forever. When the team of engineers and physicists at Culham fire up their reactor, they create plasma hotter than the centre of the Sun and for a few brief moments, Culham becomes the hottest single point in the solar system. Dr Kim Cave-Ayland is an engineer working on the systems that keep plasma under control and safely in the confines of the reactor. She shall be talking about her experiences in this industry and passing on any tips she has for budding engineers!

This event is aimed at young people, parents and anyone interested in engineering careers.
