People Like Me

A special thanks to @Grippleltd @whittamcoxarch @AECOM @TheAMRC @MERI_shu @pimoroni for attending the 'People Like Me' event on Tuesday this week (6th November), run by Mr Mason, with 8 successful women physicists and engineers and approximately 40 Y11 girls and their mums in the LRC. The girls were identified by ability and interest as having the potential to study physics in post-16.

There were so many quality conversations between the girls and the physicists about their qualifications, ed...ucation, working lives and the girls' aspirations.

The event was really positive and put the girls in a position of knowledge with respect to their choice of A-levels. Mr Mason is very proud of how the girls networked, developed contacts, enquired about work experience and mentoring and negotiated trips to see some of the employers' work places.
