As a STEM skills shortage continues to be a hot topic of discussion across the UK recruitment industry, Rullion are proud to have provided sponsorship for a week long initiative dedicated to Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics.
The sponsorship, provided to Manchester High School for Girls, enabled pupils to take part in range of group workshops and practical experiments as part of Science Week.
Beverley Rubin, Development Manager for Manchester High School for Girls, told us: “The girls had an amazing time and the events were both inspiring and exciting to take part in.”
Part of the schedule was led by members of the STEMettes, an organisation built to address a lack of women in STEM careers. The session saw students creating their own web page as the STEMettes taught them about HTML coding.
The Science Week event was designed to not only develop key skills, but to also highlight the enjoyment of the subjects, which are often perceived as being difficult.
Head of the Preparatory Department, Emma Nash, comments on the school website: “Here at Manchester High we are committed to reversing this trend and it starts right here in Prep.”
