Curiosity Connections

We had a chat a while ago with a great group called Curiosity connections, a network for people and organisations supporting and delivering STEM education in primary schools across the West of England. They were looking for some members working in the field to feature, and a couple of our brilliant members stepped up. So Big thanks to Elena and Chew .. see if you can spot them!

Engineering Curiosity is a set of 52 ‘top-trump’ style cards, each themed on a real-life local engineer from the West of England region. Through the cards, children can explore the diversity of engineering, its people, skills and future career opportunities.

If that also sparked your curiosity and you’re interested in Engineering it may be worth popping onto Bristol Universities talks about postgraduate learning in:

  • MSc Aerial Robotics
  • MSc Biorobotics
  • MSc Robotics

Sign up under their postgraduate events page.

International Women in Engineering Day

Women in Engineering Day

Women in Engineering Day event by Womens Engineering Society (WES)

Women (and men) all over the globe can help to raise the profile of women engineers and encourage more people to consider engineering as a profession for all. We are grateful to be working in partnership with the UK National Commission for UNESCO this year and thank them for their support. 

National Women in Engineering Day was launched for the first time in the UK on 23 June 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Since that launch in 2014 the day has grown enormously over the subsequent years to the point where it received UNESCO patronage in 2016.  

In 2017, National Women in Engineering Day became international for the first time due to the interest and enthusiasm developed by the international audience and participants in the previous years. International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) was born to enable the celebration of women in engineering to become global.

Grrrl Games Spring Jam 2018

One of our sister organisations is Grrrl Games, a Bristol-based meetup for women in the South-West making games, run by Constance & Jess. Grrrl Games meets monthly, either at Bristol Games Hub or Bristol VR lab. Supported by Pretty Digital & Bristol Games Hub, it is a chance for women with all levels of experience to come and get together and share what they are doing. Grrrl Games also run jams and workshops on useful games-related skills and are always open to new members, whether established in the games industry, student or aspiring indie-maker. The next women’s games jam is the Spring Jam, which includes a FREE CRECHE!!!
