Though this was mostly an informal networking event, we were given a presentation on the STEM Ambassadors programme from STEMNET. This scheme puts those working within STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines, or with a passion for technology in general, in touch with local schools. Here they can find themselves helping to enthuse pupils about STEM, giving them a new perspective and perhaps an idea about what careers STEM subjects could take them into.
Anyone who is interested in becoming a STEM Ambassador should visit the website for more details and the chance to register.
HEY! Girl Geek Dinners are held on a regular basis in locations in Hull and East Yorkshire. Everyone who shares the group philosophy is welcome to attend. Further details are available on their Facebook page and by following them on Twitter at @HEYGGD.
