Helensburgh School Physics Department Address Gender Imbalance in STEM Subjects

When the Physics department at Lomond School noted the gender imbalance in the uptake of Physics at Higher level, they made tackling this a focus for the department. They decided they wanted to broaden the view of physics so pupils could see it as a tool and as a useful key to access other areas of STEM.

They launched a project to attract more girls into the subject, and to encourage these girls to be confident in taking a more active leadership role in STEM activities.
