UK: World Refrigeration Day (WRD) has announced that it is partnering with the UK initiative Stemazing to launch the WRD Stemazing Inspiration Academy on an international stage.
The Stemazing Inspiration Academy training programme supports women in STEM to shine as visible role models and inspires young people through fun, interactive online STEM sessions.
The programme culminates in them running their own four-week online StemazingKidsclub to inspire 7-9 year olds.
Schools and families benefit from this free programme by taking part in hands-on simple STEM activities and experiments to promote children’s curiosity, creativity and courage led by a woman in STEM role model.
For the first time, the Stemazing Programme will be available free of charge to women and the schools participating anywhere in the world. This pilot international programme will be delivered in English and therefore a working understanding of the English Language is essential.
The launch of this international programme builds upon the success of the Stemazing pilot programme earlier this year which exceeded all expectations with 45 women, of which the majority where from the RACHP sector delivering STEM sessions to more than 1,600 primary school children.
Registration is now open for both women applicants until the 28 January 2022. Successful applicants will start on 14 February, with the live school STEM sessions being delivered in May 2022.
“We are excited to be partnering with Stemazing once again to launch this new international programme exclusive to women from the RACHP/HVACR sector from around the world. Interest in participating in this programme is already arriving from Australia, Indian, Africa and the USA, in addition to the UK and Europe.
“In addition to the wonderful training being offered, it will be a great opportunity for women from our sector to network and share experiences with other women from the sector from around the world.
While the pilot version of the programme will be delivered in English, if there is sufficient numbers interested that don’t speak English, Stemazing will look into the possibility of using a translator.”
