About Trailing Trailblazer: Celebrating STEM careers for all

The event ‘Trailing Trailblazer’ will take place on Monday 11 February, between 1 pm and 4 pm at UWS, Chancellor’s Hall, on High Street, Paisley.

The event will feature creative technical workshops facilitated by Ice-cream Architecture, drama performance addressing gender bias by PACE Theatre Company, opportunities to discuss what engineers and scientists really do, as well as an exhibition of local children’s poster designs, culminating with the prize giving ceremony for best posters.

At the event, families will have the chance to learn about a local heroine who had a real impact in the field of engineering, as her story will be celebrated through film and song. Dorothée Pullinger who designed a car for women, built by women engineers, trained as an apprentice in Paisley before the First World War. The families will be also invited to vote for a plaque design to commemorate Dorothée Pullinger and her Paisley connection.

We encourage local families to come along to this free, interactive event.
The event will be suitable for families and children aged 6 and over.
