A new partnership with BioCity to excite Nottingham pupils about science and raise awareness of local STEM careers opportunities
We are working in partnership with BioCity, the largest science incubator in the UK, to deliver a range of programmes engaging schools with local opportunities in STEM.
Each month, we invite a group of primary school pupils to spend a day in the BioCity labs, using their own curiosity to investigate questions that matter to them. Pupils will work with the Ignite! team and a Scientist in Residence from one of the companies based at BioCity to learn about how scientists really do investigations.
ADA LOVELACE DAY
We will celebrate Ada Lovelace Day 2019 by inviting secondary school girls to a day celebrating women in STEM. Year 7 and 8 girls from eight Nottingham and Nottinghamshire secondary schools will take part in interactive activities run by inspiring female scientists. Pupils will have the opportunity to speak to real scientists working across academia, research and industry and ask questions about what it's like to be a women in STEM.
