It is widely recognised that girls are underrepresented in STEM industries, and we aim to redress the balance. We now offer clubs and seminars, exclusively to girls through our GiST Cymru programme. In this way, we hope to reach girls who have not previously considered STEM as an option, and encourage them towards careers in STEM.
Each workshop is delivered by female engineers and scientists who showcased the opportunities open to Women in STEM.
We collaborate with a number of external partners to ensure that the GiST Cymru scheme provides variety in terms of content and offers participants the chance to experience and explore STEM subjects in a fun and engaging way. We are hugely grateful to our GiST Cymru partners who include: Chwarae Teg, British Gas, British Airways, National Museum of Wales, Science Made Simple, ESTnet, NHS Wales, and NDEC.
