Young Women into STEM is a unique careers fair - it is for young people (and their family) to come along and learn about the endless possibilities of a career or job in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths. Over 30 companies from the Plymouth area will be attending the event, so whatever you want to do - there will be a company to answer your questions!
