Stemettes hosted a series of online events featuring inspirational talks about STEM at four different schools across the UK: Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich, Millburn Academy, North Ormesby Primary Academy, and Rushden Academy.
On 16th Nov, we had a STEMtastic time w/ Eden Girls' School @edengirlsWF 🤩 with 3 @Stemettes alumnae: @AWidyadari, Precious, and Dami. 👏 We discussed routes into #STEM, their STEM role models and had a great Q&A with the Year 7's to finish up the session. #WomenInSTEM pic.twitter.com/f51tEDHM3Y
