The University of Northampton ran a very exciting day for Northamptonshire girls last week. The Inspire Girls into STEM day consisted of many workshops, talks and interactive elements.
Tricia, the UoN STEM Diversity organiser, needed demonstrators for the workshops to inspire the girls to consider a career in STEM. And who better to inspire the girls than our Year 6 Committee girls Fran, Jess and Chloe. The three Lab_13ers ran two workshops and wowed the girls, their teachers and other adult demonstrators with their confidence, inspiring enthusiasm and wonderful hands-on experience.
Jess says “It was great to inspire the younger girls and to show them that you don’t have to be a grownup to enjoy science!”
Fran says “I can’t believe my first paying job was teaching when I was 10!”
Chloe says “I wish I could do this every day!”
