For International Womens Day, on March 8th, CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory will be running a special Space Speaker in Your Classroom Programme to connect schoolgirls throughout Ireland, with women who have built careers in the Space Industry. These talks are designed to show students how varied the paths that lead to a STEM career in Space can be, and to assure them that they too can have an amazing career in this industry.
As National Outreach Coordinators for the International Astronomical Union, we’re also taking this opportunity to celebrate Women and Girls in Astronomy, and to reaffirm our commitment to making astronomy more accessible to women and girls in Ireland, and around the world.
*The schedule of speakers is currently being finalised.
