Last week some of our Year 11 and Year 12 pupils attended the GSA Girl Power: Women in Science conference, hosted by St Mary’s School in Cambridge.
During the visit the girls attended a series of lectures looking at careers in science. They also took part in a breakout session which they had selected. These included an insight into the NHS, materials science and a discussion with a panel of prominent female scientists.
Although it was a long day with plenty to take in, we hope our students were all inspired by at least one of the lecturers and that they are now considering the many benefits of studying science at A Level and degree level.
After all, the science department are very proud of our students at HOHS and we’d love the opportunity to bring our pupils to one of their lectures in the future!
