Cracking the code at STEM event
Yesterday, a group of 12 girls from Years 7 to 10 attended a Girls in STEM event, which was held at the Royal Institution in London and organised by the Stemettes. These events (which are held across the country) are designed to inspire the next generation of females into science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) careers.
The girls certainly appreciated the scientific heritage of the fantastic setting, as well as the range of workshops on offer and the exhibitions to explore. They took part in a cryptography workshop, learning how to crack and write codes, and in turn solve crimes with this information. The group also enjoyed hearing inspirational talks from women who have successful careers in STEM fields.
