Women into STEAM

The science department took 52 girls on a trip to the University of Northampton to the Women in Science Technology Engineering Accountancy and Maths (STEAM) event.

There were over 50 different careers stalls all offering interactive and engaging activities including;

 the Ben and Jerry's challenge from Unilever

 making sherbet with Scott Bader

 seeing robots

 airbrushing from Northampton college

 and lots more

The students also had a tour of the UON campus and a workshop where they looked at Vauxhall car design or go karts. This fantastic opportunity helped raise awareness and confidence in students which we lovely to see throughout the day.

The girls completed surveys at the start and end of the day which showed a massive increase in the number of students wanting to attend university without the worries they had at the start of the day.

It was wonderful to see the girls imagining themselves going to university and their behaviour was impeccable.

Isobel won a competition beating over 750 students from other schools to build the best structurally sound structure out of lolly sticks!

We also had a team of students who scored joint second out of all the teams of the day to build a go kart without instructions in the quickest time.
