Alan and Cormac are joining Festival of The Girl from Ireland to share some of their fascinating research on gender stereotyping and gender bias. In 2020 they won the top prize in the BT Young Scientist and Technologist Exhibition for their research. Following
this success, Cormac and Alan represented Ireland in the virtual European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) 2020, competing against 39 countries across Europe and the world, where they also secured the first prize.

 

In addition with adding to the narrative surrounding gender stereotyping, Cormac and Alan have utilised the data they had previously collated and conducted further statistical analysis, investigating the impact of attending co-educational or single sex schools on the prevalence of gender stereotyping.
They also aim to gather further resources online which can be used by teachers and parents to help combat gender stereotyping.

 

With activities for the kids and information for the parents this is one stall you can't miss! Learn more about them and their work here.
