Year 9 Young Females
This year for British Science Week, we are looking to host young women from the local area to learn more about science and to inspire them to think about a possible career or education path within it. Through interactive workshops, the young people will get a first-hand experience of subjects such as humanitarian engineering, coding through computer science and also learn more about alternatives to Higher Education through an apprenticeship route. This exciting day is open to young women from a widening participation background, in Year 9 from the Coventry and Warwickshire area only. As accompanying teachers, you will observe exciting sessions that you can take back to school with you to pass on the knowledge.
In order to be eligible to attend our Slice of Science Schools Event, pupils should meet at least one of the following criteria:
In receipt of (or eligible for) Free School Meals
