This case study describes how Priestley College promotes STEM subjects and careers to girls, through its ‘Girls into Physics and Electronics Day’.

Planned to be an annual event, a group of high ability year nine girls from a local high school are invited into the college to take part in physics and electronics activities, and attend a talk from a representative of the Joseph Priestley Society. 

Current female physics and electronics students from the college are on hand to talk to students about their experiences in science classes at college, and what they have applied to do at university or for a career post-college.
