This is an event from the 2018 edition

Through a series of portraits by local artist Charlie James, find out about some of the fascinating women working in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine) in and around Norfolk. This inspirational exhibition will be available to view in the lobby of The Forum’s gallery throughout the Norwich Science Festival.

In an increasingly technological society, science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine have never been more important. From space exploration to social media, STEMM permeates many aspects of our lives. However, STEMM fields remain predominantly male occupations.

This exhibition aims to showcase the variety of different careers available in STEMM, and some of the inspiring women who are pursuing them. Each woman talks about her experiences of working in STEMM, including any inspirations, aspirations and advice for the next generation.
