To meet WISE’s commitment to engage more girls to consider studies and careers in STEM – and reach 200,000 girls in the next 5 years; WISE has created a new interactive game to help girls find rewarding careers in STEM; where girls will be happy and successful.

I thought the webinar was fantastic and felt really motivated and inspired afterwards. I have a session booked in July at a girls school and even though it isn’t specifically a people like me event, there was so much useful information in the webinar that I can use. Things like girls relating to failure more, keeping their options open, being more in the know about post GCSE options etc.
