NEWS: Fry to speak at DataFest19 event for schoolgirls

Renowned mathematician and science presenter Hannah Fry is to address Scottish pupils at an event encouraging schoolgirls to engage with STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects.

Jude McCorry, head of business development at The Data Lab and Scottish Ambassador for Women in Data Science at Stanford University, said:

“We’re thrilled to welcome Hannah back for another year at DataFest19, as part of our effort to engage girls with STEM. Getting more women into STEM starts with collaboration between schools and industry to provide mentoring and encouragement. It’s very exciting to be hosting an event that is delivering collaborative hands-on engagement, mentoring and encouragement to 100 girls across Scotland.”
