Essential Career Advice for Young Women in STEM

The Young Women in 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.

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!

There will also be tours of the zoo – to find out what the animals get up to after dark and what sort of careers contribute to their welfare.

Careers advice will be provided by impartial advisors and there will be a Q&A panel with local women in STEM, so you can ask them about their journeys and why they love their jobs.


  • 6.00pm – Event opens
  • 6.20pm – Career routes talk
  • 6.40pm – Zoo talk
  • 7.00pm – Young Person Q&A

Free parking is available in the zoo car park. The fair is a short, uncovered walk from the car park so bear in mind the weather! Limited disabled parking is available by the Jaguar Restaurant (exhibit hall).

Optional return transport to Dartmoor Zoo

A chartered coach is being provided on the evening to assist those who may struggle to get to and from the zoo. The coach will be leaving from Derrys Cross roundabout at 5.45pm and leave Dartmoor Zoo at 8.00pm (expected back to the city centre at 8.25pm). Places are limited and cost £2.00 per person.

To reserve your place on the coach, please ensure you select the ‘Admission + transport’ ticket.


Food and drink will be available to buy on the evening.
