Helping women realise the potential of STEM careers

It is said that over 50 percent of the fastest-growing jobs are related to science, technology, engineering or maths, aka. STEM. To help prepare for this future, P-STEM recently hosted an event at the SciBono Discovery Centre on International Day of the Girl Child. 180 top female learners from schools in Soweto, Alexandra, Diepsloot and Atteridgeville, as well as 60 female students from universities and colleges around Gauteng, came together to meet with professional women. STEM is traditionally regarded as more male-orientated, so events such as this help break down boundaries and misconceptions.
