Let’s change the world girls!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Let’s change the world girls!  That was the message from Meg Munn MP and students and lecturers from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, at an event for national science and engineering week held at the Octagon Centre on Friday.

The MP joined leading academics to put on the ‘Discover STEM for Girls’ event, designed to show girls the wealth of career opportunities available in STEM science, technology, engineering and maths.   Around 300 girls from across South Yorkshire attended with their teachers to learn more about careers, apprenticeships and vocational courses.  They took part in a range of activities and met students from the two local universities who talked about how they felt their work could help to change lives.

Meg said:

“We know that girls are often inspired by how the work they do can change lives.  The new innovations that will help people to live longer and improve their quality of life will come from the next generation of scientists, technologists and engineers. Yet, we know that there are skills gaps in these fields, where women are underrepresented, which is why we need more girls to consider them as part of their career options. 

Girls really can change the world, and I’m sure some of the young women I met will go on to do just that!”
