Activity
This day is designed to be a targeted engagement for a group of girls but can also be run as a carousel for a larger cohort. 

The day begins with a quiz-based session to raise awareness around the history of women in STEAM and the opportunities in the present day. 

Learners then take part in 2 or 3 STEAM workshops from our collection. 

The day concludes with an opportunity to meet women in STEAM and find out more about their careers.

The quiz can be tailored to specific requirements, such as curriculum areas or world events e.g. international women’s day. 

STEAM workshops x2-3 – refer to our list of STEAM workshops.

Ambassador session options:

  • Careers curiosity showcase or Myth buster: Fact or Fiction

  • Our trained education communicators will host this panel workshops with 3-6 female STEAM ambassadors.

  • Careers curiosity - The ambassadors will carousel around groups of students, giving students the opportunity to find about more about them to ultimately make a guess at their career. The session concludes with the ambassadors revealing their job and more about what they do with a prize for the team that got the closest.

  • Myth buster – the ambassadors will each present some facts about their jobs. Learners must identify which are fact, and which are fiction, before an open Q+A session.
