Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UWS, said: “University of the West of Scotland is committed to promoting and encouraging the adoption of STEM subjects, in particular by girls, and the Trailing Trailblazer event is a fantastic way of engaging young people and their families at an early stage, showcasing the amazing opportunities and possibilities a career in STEM can unlock. I’m certain the event will provide food for thought and the stories of Dorothée Pullinger, who began her extremely impactful engineering career right here in Paisley, will be hugely inspiring to all.”
The event is supported by the University of the West of Scotland, the Culture, Heritage, Event Fund by Paisley 2021 and the Royal Academy of Engineering, Ingenious Award.
Families are encouraged to come along to the free, interactive event which is suitable for families and children six and over. The event will take place within the Chancellor’s Hall, on High Street, Paisley. To register, please visit the Eventbrite page.
