Promoting STEM to female students with I WISH Campus Week

I WISH Campus Week saw 80 second level students descend on CIT to take on interactive programmes which allowed students to immerse themselves in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) via applied & practical interactive workshops, site visits and demonstrations. One student was nominated to take a panel speaking slot at the I WISH City Hall event in February and the winner was Emma Coffey of St. Angela’s.

I WISH is an initiative to inspire, encourage and motivate young female students to pursue careers in STEM. STEM can change our world. We have so many world problems to solve – food shortage, climate change, pollution, ageing population. These will be solved through STEM if you help us harness the power of thousands of girls to shape a better world.
