Engineering the Future for Girls
Monday 8 – Friday 12 June 2020
Please see below leaflet describing 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 Nuttall 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 Nuttall 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.
Pupils should apply using the online application form available on our website: www.strath.ac.uk/engineering/outreach/engineeringthefutureforgirls
The deadline for applications is Monday 25 November 2019 and pupils will be sent a confirmation email upon receipt of their application. The selection panel will meet in January 2020 and all applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by Friday 31 January 2020.
In the application form, pupils are asked to supply the name and contact details for a teacher who can provide a statement in support of their application. Teachers will receive an automated email which will include a designated link to the online application in order to submit their statement. We ask that teacher statements are submitted online by Friday 6 December 2019, in order for the application to be considered.
