Celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science

On Monday 10 February, Brownies were set a ship stability task, where the seven to nine year olds had to build a ship that will float in water. This was followed by our team hosting a virtual reality demo and ship stability task for Guides on Tuesday 11 February.

Rebecca Savage, BMT Principal Cyber Specialist and Brownie leader said:

“This day of celebration is an excellent opportunity to share with the next generation the STEM contributions women make. We hope that through our work in community we can spark some future scientists and engineers.”

International Day of Women and Girls in Science is an initiative from the United Nations to recognise the critical role women and girls play in science and technology.

BMT’s Technical Women’s Forum is a group made up of female employees, who support each other throughout their careers, industry and life at BMT, as well as supporting the company in improving diversity across the business.
