|We’ve worked hard to ensure that young women and young non-binary people from across the country are able to join these digital sessions, no matter what their setup is at home. If you need it, we’ll send you a device, a dongle and some lunch for the two weeks you’re on the programme.|

I had so much fun! I learnt all about cool new career paths that I could pursue in the future, and after listening to all the inspiring and influential role models, my horizon of STEM careers expanded exponentially.
My daughter took part in Outbox connect in the summer and thoroughly enjoyed it…I’d just like to say a huge thank you for all you do, especially exposing girls to female role models – so important I feel!
