    Inspiring female students in Cork and Dublin

    I Wish is a national initiative in Ireland which aims to encourage and motivate female secondary school students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). It is taking place in Cork on 9 and 10 February and in Dublin on 13 and 14 February. Inspiring young women to choose to study and work in STEM is vitally important, as the low participation of females in STEM, combined with a STEM skills gap, is resulting in a significant shortage of females in engineering.
