The Project was launched on International Women’s Day 2016 at Withington Girls School, Manchester, with an original live stage show created by Siemens Education and well-known scientist and BBC presenter Fran Scott. The project is part of a unique collaboration between Siemens and the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA).
The showcase is now being delivered in schools across the UK by a mix of professional presenters, Siemens STEM ambassadors, and GSA alumni. The project has been created especially for girls, to place the spotlight on modern STEM female role models in Siemens and beyond.
