World Refrigeration Day announces international Stemazing programme

World Refrigeration Day (WRD) has announced that it is partnering with STEMAZING to launch the International WRD Stemazing Inspiration Academy. This initiative supports women in STEM to shine as visible role models and inspires young people through fun, interactive online STEM sessions.

The women in STEM participants take part in training and workshops to build their confidence on camera and their STEM delivery toolbox. These newly empowered role models then deliver a 4-week programme of LIVE online STEM sessions designed to engage children aged 7 - 9 years old.

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. 

?If you are interested in participating please register your interest below.

?Registration is now open for both women applicants  until the 28th January 2022. Successful applicants will start on 14th February,  with the live school STEM sessions being delivered in May 2022.   Thanks to the support of the sponsors, the training will be free of charge. 

Steve Gill - WRD Secretariat - said “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” 

Mr Gill continued: 'Although this pilot version of the programme will be delivered in English, if there is sufficient numbers interested that don't speak English, we can look into the possibility of using a translator'.

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. The feed-back from everyone involved and the schools has been fantastic.
