The Empowering Women with Tech and Science Conference wants to change the face of the industry.
Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon said seeing the couple embrace STEM subjects would make a significant difference to how science, technology, engineering and maths are perceived.
The couple marked International Women’s Day by joining a group of schoolgirls as they put on virtual reality headsets, tried their hand at creating apps, and connected wires from a laptop to a banana to make it work as digital bongos.
Their first stop will be to a social enterprise called Stemettes which hopes to inspire young women to pursue careers in STEM subjects (science, tech, engineering and maths) - fields which are notoriously dominated by men.
We’ve got tens of thousands of young people to hear the simple, strong message that girls can do Stem too. The result? Almost all of them say they are more interested in science and technology.
