A group of St. Mary's Transition year students, accompanied by Mr. Breen, attended the I WISH conference in the RDS on 14th February
I WISH is an initiative to inspire, encourage and motivate young female students to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). 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 by harnessing the power of thousands of girls to shape a better world.
I WISH (Inspiring Women in Stem) 2017 featured a conference, interactive exhibitions, workshops, daily keynotes and engaging talks by women and men who have seen the opportunities for a great career in STEM.
I WISH 2017 is going national to reach out to 4,000 girls.
