Gender Focus.

My Life in Science and Getting Girls into STEM - Professor Dame Athene Donald, Master of Churchill College, University of Cambridge, talks about her life in #science and her advice to school leaders on getting more girls into #STEM.

The release of #ALevelResults in the UK last week has revealed that participation from girls has overtaken boys in science A-level exam entries.

Jill Duffy, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment's OCR exam board, has commented: “There’s been a lot of effort over the years to encourage more girls to take science and to get over some of the stereotypes girls might have had about taking science, and we’ve also made the A-level syllabuses more suitable to girls".
