Mr Potts organised a trip to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy for girls to experience careers in STEM. Please see some reports below from STudents who attended.
Department for Business, Energy & InduSTrial Strategy
The Stem 丰富 event was a great experience. When we arrived we were welcomed with open arms and we received name tags. Then we were told that there were five workshops and from these five we were able to choose two to go to. The five options were UN Climate Negotiations, Biodiversity, Chemistry- The Elements That Make Us, Economics Pro and Chemicals: Good, Bad and Jury! I choose UN Climate Negotiations for Workshop 1 and Economics Pro for Workshop 2 but before we went to these workshops we were given an introduction on the day. There was an Expert Panel Q&A, which was filled with many amazing women in science, and I'm sure every female STudent who was there learnt a lot and had a great time. We then had lunch and during that hour there was also the opportunity to do a quiz on Women In 科学, which I enjoyed very much and found very educational. Afterwards, we had Workshop 1 and I found UN Climate Negotiations very fun and I learnt many facts on the topic Climate Change. I did hear from other people that Economics Pro was very enjoyable as well. I had a great time and I hope everyone else did as well!
