Why Don't Girls Do Physics?

Professor Ted Wragg presents this short Teachers TV film which explores why girls lose interest in physics the older they get, despite enjoying it at an earlier age. Professor Michael Reiss from the Institute of Education discusses his research into gender and physics and explains what schools can do to increase the appeal of physics to girls. The programme briefly looks at the strategies used by Haggerston School in Hackney to address this issue.
