Event description
Join Stemettes online to take part in a STEMazing event, themed around STEM education and careers. #AvantorFoundationXStemettes

About this event

This September, Avantor and Stemettes invite you to a STEMtastic summit with a STEM education and careers theme!

Stemettes Avantor Foundation STEM Summit Ireland is an online event that will tap into your creativity and equip you with the skills to imagine a better future.

We’ll be focusing on STEM education and careers, helping you to learn more about a possible future in this space. You'll also receive a STEMazing goodie bag in the post for taking part.

Online Event

Throughout the day, you'll be able to interact with role models from Avantor Foundation and learn about the STEM industry through their knowledge and expertise. The role models will be there to inspire your approach to the ideas you will develop during the day.

STEM Skills

We will kick off the day together then learn from our STEMazing role models during discussions and Q&As. We'll then take you through an interactive workshop to hone in on your STEM skills, before breaking for lunch. Following that, you'll join us for Speed Networking, working in groups to speak to our volunteers from Avantor Foundation.


This will leave you feeling super inspired, and ready to plan your STEMtastic future options. We'll then come back together with a Show'n'Tell, to celebrate all the skills and experience you've developed that day.

What Next?

Grab your free ticket and start getting your snacks and creativity ready for a day full of STEMtastic energy!


This event is ONLY for young women and nonbinary people in Ireland aged 15-21.
