Gumption Girls is offering a fun course exploring the idea that science is all around us and challenging the notion that scientists are all men in white lab coats.
Over the four-days girls will get the opportunity to meet female role models and take part in from a wide range of science based hands-on activities, games and speed mentoring. Girls will be encouraged and supported to explore topics that are of personal interest to them and collaborate with others to find out more.
The second workshop will be based at ASCUS Lab at Summerhall, Scotland’s first publicly accessible lab for experimentation in art and science where we will be working with microscopes and slime mould. Full details about the trip can be found here.
At the end of programme each girl will have expanded her understanding of what science really is, discovered personal passions and developed skills in communication, collaboration and leadership.
The ticket price includes three 2 hour workshops taking place on March 10th, 24th and 31st and trip to ASCUS Lab on March 17th. A saving of 22% compared to individual ticket prices.
