Within this page are links to organisations who either share our values or who provide information and support which may be of use to those working in STEM careers.

A History of Women in Science with short summaries of some of the amazing contributions women have made to science.

Cambridge Science Centre. The Cambridge Science Centre is an educational charity which hosts hands-on exhibitions, workshops, shows and talks to get the public excited about science and technology. Keep up to date with developments through the website where you will also find information about how you could become involved.

CamTechNet is a Cambridge website which aims to provide free access to information from the Cambridge Technopole community. The concept of community is one that we feel is not stressed enough when people consider the various technology sectors in Cambridge.

The Daphne Jackson Trust arranges Fellowships throughout the UK, in university and industrial research laboratories, for qualified scientists, engineers and technologists returning to work after a career break. We enable returners to retrain and gain the latest knowledge and most up to date skills whilst undertaking a challenging research project. The Fellows are supported throughout their Fellowships and given all the encouragement and help to re-establish their professional confidence and credibility leading to significantly increased employability. Fellowships are flexible, paid, and usually part-time for two years. Fellows undertake a research project and retraining programme. Applications are welcomed throughout the year.

Girls in STEM with lots of links to other sites on ‘What is STEM’, ‘Careers in STEM’, ‘Important Female Scientists’, ‘STEM Experiments and Games’, and ‘Encouraging Women in STEM’.

History of Women and Computers with links to information about the achievements of women in the world of computers and about these great women in computers: Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, Women Programmers of ENIAC, Adele Goldstine, Radia Perlman, Anita Borg, Eva Tardos, and Jean Sammet.

The WISE Campaign WISE inspires girls and women to study and build careers using science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It replaces the UK resource Centre for Women in STEM. 

TheWiSET collection: In 2010 Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) via the WiSET team inherited two collections of internationally renowned scholars’ resources with a focus on gender equality and education, particularly in science, engineering and technology (but also covering women’s history, children’s literature, women’s studies, cultural studies).
