A lesson looking at Women in Science and the contributions they have made, hopefully inspiring young girls in Schools to consider a career in STEM fields.
Starter: Work out what all the pictures have in common (all discoveries made by women), match up the questions to the percentage answers.
Main:Task 1- complete the 'Women In Science Factfind' worksheet using the computers.
Task 2- Create a factfile about a particular woman in Science. 5 factfiles to go through as a class to give them an idea of what to include.
Plenary: Sharing in pairs information about their woman in Science, then presenting to the group interesting facts about their woman in Science.
Homework: Produce a poster or leaflet to persuade more women / girls to get into scientific fields of work.
The last slide has links to different organisation that work to get more women into scientific fields of work.
