Skirting Science

We have had the pleasure of hosting the Skirting Science conference here at school today, run by Soroptimist International and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council. Nearly 200 girls from all over the borough have taken part in a variety of workshops ranging from testing their own aeronautical designs in a wind tunnel with Rolls Royce to designing their own microbes with the NHS. We have had twelve different companies and institutions visit us and work with the girls, with the aim of inspiring our young women to take an interest in science and to consider the many possibilities of a career in science related fields.

 

My thanks to Miss Cummings and the Soroptimists for their hard work in organising such a dynamic and inspiring day.
