Our year 10 female students took part in the Science webinar organised by GE (General Electric) on Monday 21st June.  The GirlsGetSET initiate encourages girls to study STEM subjects.  They  started by looking at recent scientists and if they knew of them, and if they encouraged them to study science themselves.  This was followed by why they would or would not do STEM subjects.  The girls were very open about which areas of science appealed to them and which could be developed further.  They enjoyed familiarising themselves with lab equipment and started thinking about science as more of a problem solving and risk-taking subject which they found more appealing.  The session ended very positively with real enthusiasm for STEM subjects.
