People like me - A new approach to encourage more girls into STEM

People Like Me’ has been developed by WISE to help show girls that people like them find jobs they love using science and maths. The aim is to encourage more girls to stick with science and/or maths Post 16.

‘People Like Me’ approach focuses on using adjectives to describe the attributes of scientists and engineers, allowing girls to recognise that these are attributes that they themselves possess. By doing this, girls have the opportunity to imagine themselves in a STEM career and learn despite their previous thoughts, STEM subjects are for people like them.   The session involves Quizzes, Job Role Analysis and case studies of role model
