Women in STEM Week


On Monday, students from Year 10-13 took part in a STEM speed dating event as part of our 'Women in STEM' week.

We invited 18 inspiring women, working in a variety of careers, to come and give talk to the students about their work.The majority of the speakers were CLSG alumnae, working as engineers, programmers, medics, writers, researchers, editors and designers. The students really enjoyed taking part and said that they had learned a huge amount from their conversations.


All week in the DT department, students from Year 7-11 have been taking part in design challenges at lunchtime. Teams of students from each form were competing to build self-supporting towers, structures from plastic bottles, boats and cars - using only limited resources. The winners will be announced next week.
