Engineering the Future for Girls
Monday 17 – Friday 21 June 2019
Applications Now Open!
Strathclyde University’s 1-week Summer School for S3 girls (entering S4 in June) Engineering the Future for Girls is being delivered in collaboration with BP and BAM Ritchies and is designed to engage girls in a wide range of engineering challenges that will inspire them to become the next generation of engineers. The summer school is fully-funded by BP and BAM Ritchies and all student costs, including a contribution towards travel, will be covered. Strathclyde will accept applications from girls with any range of subject choices at National 5. The summer school is non-residential and therefore pupils should be able to make their way each day to the Strathclyde University Campus in the heart of Glasgow City Centre. Teachers are not required to accompany pupils during the week. For the pupils’ convenience, we have arranged for Mentors to accompany pupils from and to Queen Street train station, Glasgow Central train station and Buchanan Bus Station at the start and end of each day.
The deadline for applications is Monday 26 November 2018 and pupils will be sent a confirmation email upon receipt of their application. The selection panel will meet early in January 2019 and all applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by Friday 1 February 2019.
