Wendy Sadler MBE: The XX Factor - Women in STEM
Join Science Made Simple's Wendy Sadler MBE on a journey to meet six amazing women in STEM who are mostly unheard of despite their achievements.
Discover what ground-breaking work they did and meet the modern-day scientists they inspired along the way. From sparks, light and gravity, to musical moments and crazy paper chains, this presentation has lots of demonstrations and audience interaction to engage all types of audiences. You’ll never look at a gherkin in the same way again…
Wendy Sadler is the founding Director of Science Made Simple and a lecturer in Science Communication and Engagement at Cardiff University. She is a Fellow of the RSA, University of Wales Trinity St. David, and the ERA Foundation. She was a contributing member of the Science Advisory Council for Wales, Chair and co-author of the Task and Finish report on STEM engagement in Wales and contributor to the ‘Talented Women for a Successful Wales’ report for the Welsh Government.
Her passion for using innovative methods to bringing STEM subjects into wider culture has led her to receive awards including the EU Descartes Laureate in Science Communication, the Leading Wales Award (Social Enterprise), Welsh Woman of the Year (Science and Technology), WISE Excellence Award and UKRC Woman of Outstanding Achievement. She was awarded an MBE in 2017 for services to Science, Engineering Communication and Engagement.
