SEPnet is delighted to sponsor CAPS, the Conference of Astronomy and Physics Students, to be held on Friday 28 June to Monday 1 July 2013 at Royal Holloway, University of London.
CAPs, the IOP student-run national event, provides a great opportunity for students from all over the UK with an interest in physics to make contacts and share information.
The aim of the event is to make students aware of physics-related projects, placements, graduate schemes and outreach projects and to share ideas and identify joint venture opportunities in which student societies can collaborate. Guest speakers, including employers, are invited to talk about post-graduate experiences, research projects and employment opportunities.
Approximately 100 students attend this event which is sponsored by SEPnet and other organisations. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get involved. To book your place and find out more, visit the here.
Open for Nominations
“Despite the economic downturn, more than 40% of firms needing people with science, technology engineering or maths (STEM) skills have difficulty in recruiting staff. Some companies manage to buck the trend and thereby increase the pool of talent available to grow their business. The WISE Awards celebrate their efforts in providing leadership to the sector and showcase the contributions women are already making to science, technology, engineering and manufacturing." Helen Wollaston, Director of Women in Science and Engineering (WISE).
SEPnet, as a WISE member, are pleased to announce that nominations for the WISE Awards 2013 are now open. The awards will be presented at a high profile evening event on Thursday 14 November at the Science Museum in London.
As well as celebrating corporate champions and individual female talent, the WISE Awards recognise the role of teachers, advisors and mentors who inspire girls with a passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Individuals and organisations can nominate themselves or nominate a person or organisation they believe deserves a WISE Award. There is no charge for entering, simply complete the nomination form and submit it to WISE via email before noon on Wednesday 31 July 2013. Full details are on the WISE website.
If you wish to sponsor the awards, contact Helen Wollaston.
