WOMEN AND GIRLS
Dragonfly is a one-day programme where year 10 girls from local state schools can come to Oxford to learn all about engineering. Girls will learn about an engineering topic, and then build a project under the guidance of current female students. This course is invitation only. If you are from a nearby school and want to show interest in attending this event in the future, click this link to indicate your interest.
Year 10 female students and their teachers/parents are invited to attend a science-themed taster day at the University of Oxford: giving students a chance to find out how different science disciplines are contributing to today's global challenges. Each day will draw sessions from across the university's science departments, based around a different theme: Health, Technology and the Environment.
YEAR 9 - 13
Are you in Year 9 and think you may want to study engineering in university? Enough to come and learn more about engineering for six Saturdays in June and July in central Oxford? Tell you teacher about Oxford’s new collaboration with the Royal Institution: Engineering Masterclasses (they are free!). Ri Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science Masterclasses are hands-on and interactive extracurricular sessions led by top experts from academia and industry for keen and talented young people all around the UK.
Studying Further Maths A-level, but not sure what you want to do at University? Talented at Maths, but not sure you want to do something that abstract at Uni? Want to know a bit more about Maths–related degree subjects that don't appear on the school curriculum? Oxford is delighted to welcome A-level students, from UK schools, to the "Further Maths — What Next?" event. The day draws together subject areas from across the University who are looking for prospective students with a real aptitude for Maths.
Planning on (or already) doing Maths & science at A-level (or equivalent)? Love science but not sure about Uni? Talented at Maths, but want something less abstract? Want to know a bit more about science degree subjects that don't often appear on the school curriculum? Heard of Earth Sciences, Engineering, Statistics, Computer Science, BioChemistry, BioMedical Sciences, or Materials, but not really sure what they are? If so, come visit Oxford on Lesser Spotted Science Day!
