FM Launches This Ayrshire Girl Can

This Ayrshire Girl Can is a campaign to encourage more women and girls into science, technology, engineering and maths.

To celebrate International Women's Day, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP visited the Kilwinning campus of Ayrshire College.

I joined the First Minister on a two hour visit during which Nicola toured the college, addressed children from schools across Ayrshire, answered questions and listened to young women who had studied STEM subjects at Ayrshire College and are now pursuing successful careers in electronics and aeronautics.

Nicola was in her element in what was a very uplifting and inspiring morning.
