Week 13 was Michelle Willis week!
This Monday, 50 attendees tuned in to follow along with our Stemillions Activity Pack (aka Meal Plan) based on the inspiring Head of Technology Operations at Vodafone, Michelle Willis. Core Stemette Jazmin introduced this weeks role model, the girls were very excited to meet Michelle and learn about Vodafone. As this was our last Meal Plan in the STEM Mode In series, we packed in as many activities as possible. First, the attendees got to meet Michelle and ask her questions about what it is like to work at Vodafone and about her extensive career in technology. We then played a game of technology-themed Bingo, we used terms such as Firewall, Broadband and LAN, the girls learned the definitions of these specialist terms and then Jazmin called out the definitions for a game of virtual Bingo! We then gave the girls 2 minutes to run around the house and write down everything that was connected to the internet, we had numbers from 5 right up to 49! We discussed what a world without Broadband connection would be like with Michelle and emphasised how important (and cool) her job is. It was very sad saying goodbye at the end of the session, we can’t wait to run more programmes like this one in the future!
