The UC3M STEM for Girls Technology Workshops will be held on the 10th of February at 6pm, aimed at girls and young women in their 4th year of Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO, in its Spanish acronym) and A Level students. The aim is to bring together research work being carried out in different fields in an entertaining way: computer security, telecommunications, app development, solar engineering, mathematics, sound engineering, sustainability, etc.

On the 14th of February at 11am, there will be a gymkhana on data science dedicated to the climatologist Eunice Foote, one of the first researchers on the greenhouse effect. This year, the theme of the gymkhana responds to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13: "Climate Action". It is aimed at secondary school students to develop students' critical thinking, promote the scientific method and raise awareness of the importance of data interpretation and analysis in everyday life.

On Tuesday the 21st of February at 11am, “The Sound of The Wind: a colloquium talk on Physics and Music” is scheduled at the UC3M Auditorium. This event will address the communicating vessels between both disciplines from the time of Pythagoras to the present day. The speaker, Almudena Martín Castro, a physicist and pianist, will be taking part in the event, and will narrate interesting facts about wind instruments, their origins and evolution throughout history in an entertaining way. Excerpts of classical works and soundtracks will be performed by the Alma Ensemble wind quintet.

From Monday 13th of March to Thursday 16th of February, the UC3M Women in Science and Technology #STEAMfemenino programme will take place at the UC3M Science Park, an initiative by the Association of Spanish Scientific and Technology Parks (APTE, in its Spanish acronym) and led by UC3M, a member of APTE, in the social environment of Leganés. During these days, there will be a series of workshops focused on improving four SDGs (6, 7, 10 and 11), technological visits to six LeganésTecnológico companies and a video contest. In total, 200 students and tutors from Leganés secondary schools are expected to take part in the programme, thanks to the collaboration of the Leganés City Council. The workshops are being organised with the Créate Foundation thanks to the sponsorship of AEQ, Avizor, Solusoft and Thales.
