FOMO? Get #PrettyCurious and get involved!
The EDF Energy Pretty Curious programme was launched in 2015 to address the under-representation of women in STEM related careers. Pretty Curious aims to inspire teenage girls through hands-on and digital experiences, to help them imagine a future where they could be making a difference using STEM.
Our pop-up Pretty Curious Studios will give you hand-on experience in STEM. We’ll show you that science and technology are all about creativity through interactive team challenges. Learn how to make a SnapChat filter, or race against a clock to problem solve though Virtual Reality.
Last year we brought the Pretty Curious Studio to Bristol, Croydon, Edinburgh and Ipswich. Want us to come to your school next? Tell your parents and teachers that you're Pretty Curious and to express their interest here.

‘Jobs of the Future’, our latest study, reveals that science, research, engineering and technology jobs will grow at double the rate of other occupations creating 142,000 extra jobs between now and 2023. If you are currently choosing your GCSEs, this is the year you would enter the workplace.
Demand for traditional science and engineering-focussed areas such as research and development and specialised construction will remain high. Even areas like retail, head offices, PR and consultancy, and legal, accounting and financial services will have high demand for science, research, engineering and technology skills between now and 2023.
Read all the data behind this in our report. Now is the best time to study science subjects at school to prepare for your future!
EDF Energy is partnering with 20th Century Fox to offer tickets to preview screenings of the film Hidden Figures. Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) - brilliant African-American women who were mathematicians working at NASA. They served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
Katherine, Dorothy and Mary were passionate about STEM and achieved incredible milestones through their love of science, engineering, maths and technology.
