Skirting Science 2018

6 July 2018

2018 marked the 10th anniversary of Skirting Science. Organised by the Soroptimist International Weston-Super-Mare branch, Skirting Science serves to address the gender imbalance in certain science careers. Over 230 Y9 pupils from 15 local schools attended the event, held at Churchill Academy. The School of Biochemistry was in attendance once again, running practical workshops to inspire future generations of female scientists.

‘The workshops have been fun and practical. They have shown me there are lots of opportunities and careers in science.’
