The Routes to STEM event was held at Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus from 2pm to 5pm. It was exclusively for 14-18 year old women, where they discussed all the different ways people begin their scientific careers. They explored apprenticeships, A-Level choices, university degrees and work experience.
They had an opportunity to ask a panel questions and network between each other and the experts. Confirmed panellists included: Lucinda Sandom-Allum (Imperial College Union President), Androula Alekou (Postdoctoral Research Assistant) and Daniel Garrett (Fare Will, Imperial-RCA Design School and Oxford Engineer).
Student’s feedback was very positive and assisted with making decisions about their future education and career paths.
