Upcoming STEM Events

National Women in Engineering Day


The Women’s Engineering Society (WES) is calling on schools to organise events to celebrate National Women in Engineering Day. There is FREE resource pack for teachers to help them organise an event.

Anyone can get involved and help encourage girls and women into STEM careers: whether you host an engineering-based event for young people, recruit a female engineer to speak at a local school, or tweet about NWED to help increase diversity in the engineering sector.

STEM Ambassadors are available to support activities on this date and help encourage pupil to understand that Engineering and STEM subjects are for both women and men. For more information, visit and request a resource pack.
