Joint event with The Royal Academy of Engineering, BCS Hampshire Branch, BCSWomen Specialist Group, BCS Open Source Specialist Group and Southampton Solent University.

Booking required if possible , as limited spaces, via Margaret.ross@solent.ac.uk as we are using a laboratory, so there is no need to bring your own equipment, please put BCS Hampshire Editathon in the subject link. We can make arrangements if you need to arrive late - just let me know your approximate arrival time when you book.

The 23 June is the National Women in Engineering Day, and the 95th anniversary of WES, which was formed in 1919.

Get involved, as a researcher or a techie - this is not just for women - no prior knowledge required.

Research

If possible, undertake research for information about subjects on Wikimedia's list of women, alive or dead, as role models, to have material (book reference, web page etc) ready for adding to their pages on Wikipedia during the Editathon. You can bring your research on paper or memory stick, but include references. If you have any questions, do ask me. There will be some research already undertaken which you could use in the editathon, if you have not been able to bring some - no prior technical knowledge needed.
