For the first 2 week of August, I joined a huge number of like-minded STEMettes on the Outbox 2020 programme. Each morning, we were joined by a number of STEMazing role models, who talked us through their journey into their industries, while others were based around important, relevant topics, such as the development of sustainable fuels to use in our homes and cars. These talks gave us all a great insight on how we ourselves […]

This post has been written by Eve who attended our Outbox 2020 programme that ran throughout August 2020. I’ve always been a do-er.  As a young child, my summer holidays were filled with Mad Science camps and extracurricular’s.  STEM club and Crest Awards filled my time after school.  The desire to try new things has never really left me. When I found out about Stemettes’ Outbox program, it was a no-brainer!  Two weeks of focused learning, meeting those in industry, and a Python qualification to round it all up.  The last time I had studied Python was in Year 6.  […]

Later in the morning, we worked towards […]

This post has been written by Eden, 8 who is at primary school and attended our ‘Stemettes Rise Hack #2‘ event on 22 & 23 August 2018. I am Eden and I am 8 years old. The first time I did coding was in school when I was 6 years old in Year 1. I used Purple Mash. At first I thought it was a scrumptious meal, or a beetroot with big feet stomping everywhere! That’s because I like cooking so food is always on my mind. Talking about food, in the summer holidays I did some gardening and planted some marrow peas, […]
