INFANT goes Wild for IWISH at Fota Wildlife Park
Prof Geraldine Boylan inspiring young transition year girls at IWISH event in Fota
Prof Geraldine Boylan and members of The INFANT Centre team participated in Cork’s “I Wish” initiative that took place at several venues across Cork. Prof Boylan spoke to several groups of female transition year students at Fota Wildlife EducationCentre. Her inspirational speech focused on “why not science, technology, Engineering or Maths” and opened their minds to the vast possibilities in these sectors for their futures.
I Wish is a city and regional schools initiative to inspire Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). The idea, the dream, the wish, is to promote greater female participation in STEM, to ensure that Ireland maximises its talent pool and continues to attract high skilled jobs. This is Cork’s response…
