UCD marked International Day of Women and Girls in Science in 2022 by launching a series of videos to encourage more girls to consider a career in pSTEM. The video series, entitled “Role Models in pSTEM: You Can Be What You Can See”, showcases ten female role models from across Ireland who have studied physics, maths, engineering, or computer science. 

The videos are accompanied by an educational resource for teachers which can be used in schools across Ireland – with a particular focus on DEIS schools – to encourage students to identify their own local role models, while highlighting the varied and exciting career opportunities open to young women in pSTEM.

Leading the project are Dr. Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, Assistant Professor at the School of Mathematics and Statistics, and Dr. Catherine Mooney, Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science at University College Dublin.

International Day Of Women And Girls In Science 2019

As part of UCD Women@STEM’s commitment to help educate young women on the opportunities available to them in STEM, Dr Sharon Shannon invited primary school students who have previously participated in a UCD STEM workshop programme, to return for a journey through science by experimentation and to celebrate the women scientists who lead the way for current generation of women researchers.

In addition to the workshop the UCD EDI group held an exhibition celebrating women within the College of Science.  The female role models were on hand to discuss their roles within STEM fields and to share their experience with the primary school students, teachers and staff across the university.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Celebrated with an exhibition on the ground floor of UCD Science Centre and a visit by primary school students in the Outreach Laboratory.
