As the proportion of girls sitting Computer Science and Engineering GCSEs hit worrying lows, Spencer Kelly asks Anne-Marie Imafidon how to inspire more girls to get into science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.
Spencer asks why boys outnumber girls in tech. Dan explores IFA, the biggest tech expo in Europe. And Lara rediscovers augmented reality. Plus tech news.
"Our events are free, fun and involve food!"
"Girls often don't want to be the only one in the class so they tend not to pick the subject when it is an option," she said.
