Getting Girls into Engineering: Best Practice Case Study

This London Engineering Project best practice case study, from the Royal Academy of Engineering, describes the actions and results of the project's efforts to integrate equality and ensure the participation of girls in STEM activities.

Aiming to encourage under-represented groups, and especially girls, to take up STEM subjects, the Project delivered STEM enrichment activities, science and engineering clubs, residential courses and mentoring to schools.

The report describes the outcomes of the project, the role of the UKRC fieldworker who gave advice and provided an on-site role-model, and quotes feedback from participating organisations.
