I WISH Campus Week saw 80 second level students descend on CIT to take on interactive programmes which allowed students to immerse themselves in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) via applied & practical interactive workshops, site visits and demonstrations. One student was nominated to take a panel speaking slot at the I WISH City Hall event in February and the winner was Emma Coffey of St. Angela’s.

I WISH is an initiative to inspire, encourage and motivate young female students to pursue careers in STEM. STEM can change our world. We have so many world problems to solve – food shortage, climate change, pollution, ageing population. These will be solved through STEM if you help us harness the power of thousands of girls to shape a better world.

Nimbus researchers Emily Twomey, Samira Roshany, Jane O’Flynn, CIT VP of External Affairs Orla Fynn, and Nimbus’ Ramona Marfievici spent time discussing opportunities in STEM with female students on January 20th.
