International Women’s Day provided the perfect platform for INEOS TEAM UK’s official charity the 1851 Trust to launch its Next Generation Roadshow for Girls 2019 programme & re-open the Tech Deck.
120 girls aged 11-14, from state schools in Hampshire and Sussex, visited the 1851 Trust at the home of INEOS TEAM UK in Portsmouth for a fun, interactive day of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
The Trust’s focus on girls comes as it is reported by WISE (the campaign for gender balance in science, technology and engineering) that women make up only 22% of the STEM career workforce. The Trust’s roadshow days help to challenge perceptions that might put girls off and to support their aspirations. Today marks the third year of this innovative and engaging programme run by the 1851 Trust
