In addition to the activities shown here, new opportunities are currently being planned. Please contact us to be added to our mailing list to be kept up to date with the latest Girls Into STEM activities and visits to industry.

 

The Urban Farming Project

Take part in an exciting challenge that EESW has put together in conjunction with Cardiff University. This cross-curricular project challenges teams of students to design, build and program their own smart micro-greenhouse. EESW will provide kits including a programmable BBC Micro:bit, water pump, soil moisture sensor, servos and an environmental control board alongside how-to guides and videos, lesson plans across the curriculum and challenge guidelines.

 

 

Engineering - Is It For Me?

A careers session with a difference! Introduce your pupils to the broad field of engineering careers with this engaging activity. Pupils are given a branch of engineering to discover, which they will use to create a profile of an engineer to share with their classmates.

Suitable for KS3. All resources and session delivery available online.

 

 

Our Girls into STEM programme of events aim to at encourage female pupils to take an active interest in STEM subjects prior to their GCSE subject choices.

Visits are arranged for groups of 8-45 pupils to a company or university department.  Some of our partner organisations include:


 Programmes include:

  • An introduction to the company / organisation
  • A site tour
  • Practical hands-on activities
  • Inspiring talks by role models in STEM

Visits are very beneficial for the pupils as they gain an insight into how the company operates, experience what goes on there and develop an appreciation for the different working environments that exist.

 

Company visits

Visits to local companies for pupils to gain an insight into the company’s activities, experience what goes on and develop an appreciation for the different environments that exist.  Pupils meet employees who discuss their background and roles within the company, have a tour of the site, and the day involves a practical activity.  

They will be encouraged to relate their observations to their school subjects, particularly STEM, and discuss how their choice of GCSE subjects will influence their own possible career path.  

University visits

Pupils will get the opportunity to visit university engineering departments, where they will be given a tour of the facilities and engage with activities under the supervision of university staff. The day is designed to show what university life is like and to encourage girls to consider going to university to study STEM subjects.
