Virtual, Adobe Connect, Remote delivered CPD View on Google Map


Leading on from the Women in STEM event, this collaborative discussion and networking event is aimed at primary or secondary teachers interested in:


  • Sharing best practice and discussing ideas to encourage girls into STEM.
  • Invigorating their existing club to encourage more girls to join.
  • Setting up a new STEM Club.



This session will consider:


  • How can we utilise STEM clubs to attract more women into STEM careers?
  • What obstacles, or perceptions could girls be facing, that may put them off STEM?
  • Do we need to market STEM Clubs differently to attract more girls, or highlight topics they enjoy engaging with?
  • To be most effective in getting more women into STEM, should we be focusing on activities for a certain age range?
  • How can we effectively engage with STEM Ambassadors to provide more career role models?
  • Should we be looking to create a programme of shared activities, or creating a STEM Club Challenge?



Contributors include:

Helen Colvert, award winning STEM Club teacher from Downlands Community School.

Marisa Amato, PhD in clinical neuroscience and molecular genetics and STEM Ambassador.


Hosted by: Estelle Whewell, Sussex STEM.

Helen will be sharing top tips for success throughout the event and Estelle will be collating a list of action points to help develop appropriate activities to support Girls into STEM Clubs.
