Girls in Physics

Girls are under-represented in physics post-16. In 2006 the Institute of Physics published the results of a review that sought to identify causes of this serious issue.

Following publication of the research findings, the Institute produced a teachers' guide and two video films that explored ways in which schools could encourage girls to study physics post-16.
