Pretty Curious aims to inspire teenage girls to imagine a future where they use STEM – science, technology, engineering and maths - to help make a difference.
Our programme of activities aims to change the perception of STEM subjects and address the reasons girls are being put off.
We want to open their eyes to the varied career opportunities available if they pursue STEM subjects at school and beyond.
Currently just one in seven people working in STEM today in the UK is a woman . This means there is a pool of undiscovered STEM talent.
We're hoping to increase our intake of female STEM graduates and apprentices to 30% by 2018. This is an ambitious target, and one we're committed to dedicating resources and programmes, like Pretty Curious, to reach.
Getting girls interested in STEM will not just help us reach our targets but could also help avoid a STEM workforce shortage in years to come.
