Maths4Girls offers ALD events to schools
Maths4Girls is a charity program dedicated to inspiring more girls to study maths beyond GCSE and closing the gender gap in STEM. In celebration of Ada Lovelace day on 10th October, Maths4Girls are partnering with schools around the country to bring in female role models to speak about women in STEM as well as their own careers in STEM and how they use maths in their careers. Maths opens up choices and opportunities for all individuals, and we encourage you to take action today to inspire your students to choose this valuable tool for their lives.
Maths4Girls invite you to join them, so book a role-model speaker to host an online webinar for your classroom:
Choose up to 3 speakers.
Choose the time and day that suits you best, we suggest this is either on October 10th (Ada Lovelace Day) or as close as possible to that date.
Maths4Girls confirm your booking within 72 hours. They will share the login details for the online webinar.
