UofG Female engineers team up with Uni of Rwanda
Issued: Fri, 01 Apr 2016 11:56:00 BST
This June, a group of eight female engineering students from University of Glasgow’s FemEng will take up residence at the University of Rwanda in Kigali to combine their skills and innovation with a team of Rwandan counterparts.
The common goal: to encourage, educate and inspire Rwanda’s female STEM students of the future.
FemEng in Rwanda, which has received backing from a number of high profile engineering companies including CH2M and Western Ferries, will involve the delivery of STEM-based workshops including Dyson and biomedical activities to high school students with the intention of fostering an interest in this field among participants.
Come along to the launch event
The pioneering project launches on 14 April in the Wolfson Medical Building at the University of Glasgow from 5pm-7pm.
The group invites anyone who wishes to find out more to this event which will feature presentations from students and sponsors and a drinks reception.
