Stirling Women in STEM

As the University of Stirling's Women in STEM society we aim to celebrate and connect women studying Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths within the University and with potential employers. We welcome everyone into our society as we hope to learn, share ideas and experiences with one another.

We create a safe space where STEM students can attend ‘how to’ sessions, group study sessions, guest speaker events, and come along to more chilled events to relax. We also work with Equate Scotland, who strive for equity within STEM, offering many opportunities and resources for women in STEM that will help them before and during their careers in STEM.

Members typically study

  • Chemical/Process

Social events

Ghost Walk

Together with a group of our members, we took a walk around a number of haunted locations in Stirling’s town centre and shared some facts about a number of ghosts which are said to inhabit certain areas around the town centre.

Christmas Social

To wrap up the autumn semester we held a Christmas event where we went back to basics with crafts, colouring, snacks, music, and a Science Museum advent calendar for the best Christmas Jumper.

Recent projects

Black History Month

For Black history Month we took the opportunity to highlight and educate about the importance of celebrating the achievements and contributions of those with African and Caribbean heritage to British society, and Black History in general.

Within this, we highlighted the work of some women in STEM and struggles they face with being black women in science; and how these challenges are more nuanced and compounded compared with the challenges that other women in STEM face.

We finished this event by watching the film ‘Hidden Figures’ which depicts the story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, the brains behind astronaut John Glenn’s space launch.

Freshers/Refreshers Fayres

To kick off the Autumn semester of 2022 we held a stall at Freshers where we had the opportunity to meet and greet new and returning students to the University where we promoted our society alongside handing out free merchandise.
