In 2016, we hosted a fantastic gathering of creative events, featuring world-leading scientists from the University of Dundee and around the world, to celebrate women in science, technology, engineering and maths. We had a fun-packed programme full of family events, comedy, film and meet the author activities featuring Kathryn Harkup (author of A is for Arsenic) and Lucy Hawking, whose most recent book George and the Blue Moon, amongst others in the series, were co-authored with her father, Professor Stephen Hawking.

We're also pleased to have returned with great days of events for young children and families on Mother's Day and with a special Family Fun Day at the Botanic Gardens.

The Women in Science Festival is brought to you by the University of Dundee; our major sponsors, The Wellcome Trust and the Biochemical Society.
