Connecting Girls and Women in STEM

Last year, Ayrshire College launched Ayrshire Connects – a mentoring network for female STEM students across our campuses and courses to connect with each other, with students in other colleges and universities, and with women in the industry sectors they aspire to enter.

ayrshire connectsWhen girls and women start on science, technology, engineering and construction courses at Ayrshire College, we want to make sure they get the best possible experience that enables them to move into  a career in the sector of their choice.  

We want our students to have the chance to build networks with students in other colleges and universities. Read how Ayrshire Connects is helping students make these connections in this article about a visit to Glasgow University

At the Ayrshire Connects launch event last year, 150 girls and women had the privilege of hearing leading NASA figure, Sarah Murray, talk about her career. We are delighted that participants at our second annual Ayrshire Connects conference – Girls with Grit – will once again have the chance to hear from Sarah, this time on strategies for succeeding in your studies and career. If you’d like to attend, the details are in the graphic below. 

 
If you can’t make this event, watch Sarah’s talk from last year – it’s a long film but we promise that you will be glad you watched it!
