EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY WOMEN IN STEM
As a society, we pride ourselves in organising events which are all about inclusivity, not exclusivity, and which cater to a wide range of interests throughout the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
We have a multitude of events ranging from Hackathons, lectures and discussions and escape rooms!
So hopefully there is something to suit everyone!
BIG QUESTIONS WITH KRYSTAL TOROKOFF
Join WiSTEM and PhysSoc for another in our series of informal talks with Edinburgh's own #HeroesOfSTEM. Dr Kristel Torokoff, the Queen of Sweden herself, will be discussing her career, followed by an opportunity to ask questions about her work and experiences. There will, of course, be snacks. Room 4312.

Join EUWiSTEM and our amazing sponsor Bloomberg for Bpuzzle! A series of logic puzzles themed to cities around the world and race to the end! This is a great opportunity to find out more about Bloomberg's graduate and summer schemes:

EUWISTEMXSOFTWIRE: ESCAPE ROOM
