This January at Connect the Nerd Girls will once again be bringing you Spark Ideas. Sparks are a series of 6 min informal talks on a variety of topics – we have our own channel on Vimeo but to see last year’s sessions take a look at our playlist on youtube
Sparks doesn’t really have a single message but the stories represent things like strength, joy, persistence, inspiration and bravery of all kinds. You may not think that applies to you but I can assure you it does. For instance
- Have you been involved in any educational projects around STEM – even a school science or computing project?
- Do you have something that inspired you this year or is inspiring you to change that you want to talk about?
- Do you have ideas on how to encourage girls into STEM or experience of the challenges they face and how they overcome them?
- What new opportunities are there that are being missed?
- What brings you joy?
If you think you’d like to speak, or just want to talk through an idea please ping me on Skype (GabriellaDavis) or on twitter @Gabturtle or contact Amanda Bauman at IBM @amandabauman. Connect is fast approaching so get in touch soon
Sparks is on Tuesday at 2.30 in Florida 4 and we hope to see you there.
