Explore the Women in STEM Trail this IWD

Follow in the footsteps of amazing women in STEM across Edinburgh!

Important female figures in Edinburgh

The Edinburgh Women in STEM trail, originally created as part of the Ada Lovelace Day on October the 10th, 2023, has found a new permanent home on the Curious Edinburgh website, just in time for International Women's Day. 

It can now be accessed via the Curious Edinburgh app amongst other scientific and community heritage trails. The trail was developed by the team in the LTW and the new exciting unveiling was made possible thanks to EDINA’s geospatial imagery.

The self-guided trail features 13 locations in Edinburgh connected to amazing women in STEM and celebrates equality, diversity and inclusion in the STEM field and beyond.
