Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more and fear less” - Marie Curie
Wise and very relevant words by Marie Curie. Now more than ever we need scientists, (female scientists!) to helping inform our decisions for the future. This event aims to inspire the next generation girls to take up subjects in science, technology, engineering and maths. Beginning with a Dome Theatre Show then onto a private tour of our Observatory, participants will get the opportunity to talk with astronomers and science students about their jobs and current research along the way.
