Science is such an important subject and has a crucial role to play in everybody’s life. Without science we wouldn’t have medicines to make us feel better or be able to find new ways of producing energy to help protect the planet. Science is within the foods we eat and the clothes we wear, it’s inside and outside in fact it’s absolutely everywhere. Science is a very popular subject to study at university and here at Manchester thousands of students are studying it. Read on to find out more about science and the people who teach it at The University of Manchester.

Classroom Resources SciGirls has the bold goal of changing how millions of girls think about science, technology, engineering and math – or STEM. Each half-hour episode highlights the processes of science and engineering, following a different group of middle school girls who design, with the help of scientist mentors, their own inquiry-based investigations on a variety of topics. They also learn how rewarding and fun it is to work with their peers, and the shows’ female mentors offer girls a glimpse of exciting STEM career possibilities. SciGirls educational materials provide gender-equitable teaching strategies and hands-on inquiries based on the concepts modeled in SciGirls’ videos. The SciGirls approach is rooted in research on how to engage girls in STEM. A quarter of a century of studies have converged on a set of common strategies that work, and these have become SciGirls’ foundation—aka the SciGirls Seven.
