On September 22nd, Glasgow hosted us for a day of tech and music at AlGirlRhythm. Held in the O2 Academy, young women met people from across the music industry, technology industry, engineering and also MusicTech, with the help of our friends Go Think Big.
We welcomed some amazing music performances to inspire the young women:
- Erin Mchugh
- Nuala Bennett-Wilford

Throughout the day we ran a range of panels and workshops, workshops included app building with SwarmOnline and ‘We don’t want to talk about failure’.
We had the pleasure of welcoming a range of people to partake in our panels and speed networking session including Abbey Road Studios!
The day closed with some light-hearted Karaoke and with that we bid goodbye to everyone that came along and participated in our STEMazing day!
