This case study describes how Priestley College promotes STEM subjects and careers to girls through its biennial trip to CERN in Geneva.

All physics students are asked to fill in a letter of application outlining why they wish to take part in the trip. Staff are keen for students to have some future plans related to particle physics / physics / science, and for those who apply, their college attendance is looked at, as is their attitude to learning and their general behaviour in lessons. 

In 2014 there was 50% female participation in the trip. 

The resource includes an overview of how a school or college could organise a similar trip.
