Thinking of studying Biology but don’t know exactly what kind of career it might lead you to? This event might be for you. Aberdeen Science Grrl are hosting an evening of talks from women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers with a focus on biology.

We hope to inspire you to pursue a career in biology – and show you how your career really can change the world. Our talks are all about the real lives of women working in STEM in the Aberdeen area, what they do and how they got there.

Come along and listen to their experiences and get an insight into some of the varied and interesting careers that Biology can offer. There will be 6/7 speakers and an opportunity for questions and answers afterwards.

Speaker list:
Lynda Blackadder – Data Analyst
Jill Rennie – Environmental Engineer
Joanna Kemp – Freshwater Ecologist
Samantha Law – Curator of Bacteriology
Abigail Hay – Genetics Student
Christiane Wirrig – Microbiologist

Who is it for? This event is primarily aimed at girls aged 12-18 who enjoy science and in particular biology but who are looking for ideas of where it might take them. However anyone is welcome to attend: boys, parents/carers, teachers and youth leaders etc. This event is organised by the Aberdeen Science Grrls and is funded by the Scoiety of Biology.

Its is a public event open to pupils from any school. If you cant make the event you can find out more about Science Grrls in Aberdeen by following us @sciencequines.
