On February 25th, 2017...
We were thrilled to launch, together with the Oxford Physics Department, our first g4g Day in one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world, OXFORD!!
From the mysteries of spectroscopy and chocolate stats to exploration of the body from the inside and out, from science journalism to the spread of diseases and acceleration show, and that's not all, the 100 girls had the chance to meet and be inspired by incredible role-model professionals, and to visit the beautiful hall of Pembroke College!

We were thrilled launch the first ever #g4g Day event at Oxford University on 25th February 2017 with an incredible team of volunteers and 100 very enthusiastic girls! From revealing the mysteries of spectroscopy and delving into chocolate statistics, the girls had a chance to explore the body from the inside and out, discover what it means to be a science journalist while making tea bags fly, the cool technology world of a medical physicist, and that’s not all… Their curiosity continued as lunch was served at the grand dining hall and beautifully well-known Pembroke college, followed by a panel discussion with incredible role-model professionals, and ending the day with a bang as girls and parents witnessed the Accelerate show that blew them away! Just a few favourite quotes from parents: “She has come back with lots of ideas and full of enthusiasm. I suspect a cardboard tube spectroscope may be our Easter school holiday project so I’m looking forward to our attempts to find some solar Fraunhofer lines.”, “I do not think you should underestimate the impact this day will have, seeing strong successful women in the STEM fields is so important and valuable. It allowed all of the girls today to believe that anything is possible” Thank you everyone!!!
A very big thank you to Kathryn, who represents a great team at Oxford Women in Physics and a particle physicist herself, and in strong collaboration with Oxford Physics Department – thank you Sian for leading the way and all the strong volunteers & workshop leaders that came out in support of the day!
