The core message of the event was to inspire, encourage and motivate young female students to carry on STEM subjects to Leaving Certificate level and beyond, in order to keep job opportunities in this sector open to them.
“I WISH is about debunking the myths and showcasing the opportunities out there, but it is also very much about building confidence and helping the girls realise that they are capable of doing anything they put their minds to” co-founder of the event Ms. Gillian Keating said. She continued “Year on year, the girls tell us they want careers where they will be making an impact and helping people. What they don’t see is that the best building block to improving people’s lives is through STEM.”
TY students from SVSS, with their Business Teacher, Mr. J. Deane were very happy to be part of this event.
