Who is your heroine of science? To coincide with International Women's Day, the University of Reading invites you to join us for an exciting event celebrating the work of female scientists. This event is aimed at Y11 and Y12 students and is kicked off with an inspiring guest lecturer delving into an area of chemistry research. Students are then encouraged to contribute to one of the two following competitions

 

  • Each school is invited to submit a team of 4 students to give an oral presentation about their unsung heroine of science.
  • Additional students (individually or in pairs) are invited to communicate their research via a poster board display.

 

Teams are judged via an academic panel with prizes for the best presentation. Priority will be given to students who are contributing to the presentations or display; however non-presenting students are also welcome.

 

There is a deposit (refundable on attendance) payable for this event: £50 per school.
