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.
