Women currently make up only 11% of the Cyber Security workforce. In this session, we hope to show girls and non-binary students how fun and accessible cyber security is as a potential future career for them. During this event, we will be joined by Standard Chartered for a morning of cyber security role models and fun.
Your class(es) will join the session along with other schools from across London and Liverpool. At 9 am, we will have a welcome keynote from a woman at Standard Chartered to help the students understand who Standard Chartered are.
We will then set a fun group project for students. This will build on what was learnt in the keynote and will focus on UX and UI design, this will only require paper, pens and colouring pencils. Team Stemette and Standard Chartered volunteers will still be online for this section to support students.
Just before the session ends, we will also host a mini panel so students can further their understanding of cyber security careers and the many routes into STEM.
Attendees will also be given priority on the upcoming initiatives that are part of Futuremakers @ Stemettes, including our Student to Stemette mentoring programme as well as various STEM certification academies.
A maximum number of 20 participants per session.
1 session lasting 2 hours.
