About our event

Our company are throwing our 1st Annual IWD STEM Day on Thursday 8th March 2018 in Marylebone, London and we would love it if you would be involved. We are pleased to invite you to be one of our sponsors for our upcoming event with this proposal letter.

 

Why STEM?

 

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is vital because it permeates into every aspect of our lives. Educating our students in STEM prepares them for their lives no matter what profession they choose to follow. By exposing students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and that is what we want to achieve on our STEM day. 

 

Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously evolving and expanding. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives.

 

The National Science Foundation said: 

“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” 

 

Why on IWD?

 

IWD stands for International Woman’s Day it is held every year on March 8th. 

 

Workforce diversity in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sector for women is incredibly low. Careers are male dominated; just 9% of Engineering, 19% of Computer studies and 38% of Maths graduates are female. In fact, just 13% of the entire UK STEM workforce is female. (forwardladies.com/stem-survey)

 

STEM education helps to bridge the gender and ethnic gaps that is commonly found in math and science fields. We hope our STEM day brings passion, excitement and a sense of achievement for all of our students who attend the day. This is not limited to children we want to inspire other women and men to get involved in the day by holding our black tie event in the evening which opens our doors to adults who can also get involved in a STEM workshops.  

 

We hope to have over 500 girls, boys, women and men throughout the day at our event.

Immunology Workshops 

How well do you know your self?

Do you know how you work and how your organs fit together? Of course, many of us are familiar with organs such as the stomach and the lungs, but could you correctly fit the organs into their right places in a model of yourself? What about organs related to the immune system, such as the thymus or the spleen? Challenge yourself in this workshop in which we will explore how our organs fit together and how our immune system can access certain parts of the body to protect them from disease from invading pathogens!

 

Speaker

 

Kathryn Gray is a postdoctoral research scientist at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation at the University of Glasgow under supervision of Prof Simon Milling, a board member for the British Society of Immunology. Her current research area is on researching T cell migration in the gut for better understanding of how Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) can be treated. She did her PhD at Northumbria University where she investigated the presence of different antibody profiles in the blood sera of patients with different forms of the autoimmune liver disease Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) with the aim of helping to stratify treatment of this disease. Prior to this, she obtained a degree in Genetics at the University of Newcastle with a project in developing a new diagnostic tool for the prenatal detection of common chromosome trisomies. She decided to go into biomedical science research to help develop treatments for diseases and hopefully help people to live longer and healthier lives and also because she is fascinated by how all of the systems in our body work on a microscopic levels.
