Event description

Description

Why STEM?

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM subjects are vital because they permeate through every aspect of our lives - without STEM there would be no internet!

The National Science Foundation said:

In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based an highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.

Why on IWD?

IWD stands for International Women's Day. It is held every year on March 8th.

Workforce diversity in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sector for women is incredibly low. Careers are male-dominated; just 9% of Engineering, 19% of Computer Studies and 38% of Maths graduates are female. In fact, just 13% of the entire UK STEM workforce is female.

STEM education helps to bridge the gender and ethnic gaps that is commonly found in maths and science fields. We hope our STEM day and our black-tie evening brings passion, excitement and a sense of achievement for all who attend.
