Sensing Energy at Cardiff Stemettes Event

Last month, members of the Energy Biographies/FLEXIS team attended an event organised by Stemettes aimed at encouraging young women to think about careers in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). At the event we exhibited some of the materials from our ‘A Sense of Energy’ exhibition with the aim of showing attendees that technical issues surrounding energy and sustainability can also be addressed from a social science and creative arts perspective. These are issues that continue to be at the forefront of our thinking now that we are working as part of a large interdisciplinary network, FLEXIS. The event provided a great opportunity to re-use some of our fantastic interactive exhibits, which we hope to do more of in future.
Pictures from the event are available here and a short film about the event was made by BBC news
