Sixth form conference

The Royal Institution and Ernst & Young  are delighted to invite you to this one-day conference for sixth formers.

Hosted by Kate Bellingham, a TV presenter and engineer, this will be a day of discovery led by leading women from industry and academia working in exciting areas of technology.

Speakers will include Christine Ashton, senior vice-president of Thomson Reuters and Genevieve Smith-Nunes, creator of [Arra]stre, a data driven dance performance inspired by computer science.

Delegates will enjoy interactive presentations, participate in a maths/science competition and join in with a Q&A session with four current female undergraduates studying a computer science degree.
