This year International Women and Girls in Science Day falls on Thursday 11th February and the University of Warwick are celebrating, by hosting a number of opportunities open to you and your students.
Year 9/10 – Downloadable Lesson Plans
We know that choosing a science degree doesn’t always appeal to everyone, especially young females. However we also know that there is a lot of misconception out there, about what a science degree means and where it leads to.
Working closely with our academic colleagues within the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Medicine, we would like to bring to you, the chance deliver your own session for Women in Science Day.
We have created for you, 4, one hour, subject lesson plans around key, exciting science topics, that you will be able to deliver at your own pace and time to suit.
Each lesson plan will come as follows:
- Introduction presentation to Women in Science Day
- 30 minute interactive session from one of our Academic colleagues.
- A Warwick Student Life Talk (female scientist)
- A short IAG session about life at University and what you can do with a science degree.
These are designed to be flexible and can be used in short sections or as a whole.
Year 12/13 Live Q&A 6pm – 7pm (GMT)
We are excited to bring to you a live panel with some of our leading female academics, who will give you a first-hand account of their journey’s in to Science, how they discovered their pathways and what inspiring ideas they are leading on. Students will have the chance to ask questions, hear from one of our Warwick Graduates, as well as a current Warwick Science Student.
You will also be able to access, short pre-recorded videos of our panel members and other women from the Faculty, before the event.
