Introducing the Pretty Curious Studio

The Pretty Curious Studio has already taken the fun and excitement of STEM to thousands of girls throughout the country. 

Studio events challenge girls creatively and give them the opportunity to explore and experience the career possibilities available by pursuing STEM subjects at school.

I really enjoyed this workshop because it showed that girls can be amazing and make huge differences in the world. It also provided me with amazing new innovative activities to complete.​

Highlights from the Pretty Curious Studio

The Studio workshops offer students an opportunity to explore virtual reality, create their own ‘smart gadgets’ and simply uncover the science behind the every day. 

As well as developing new skills, all our events are facilitated by inspiring role models in STEM careers. 

Pretty Curious Studio Highlights

"The girls were enthralled from the moment we arrived and had a fantastic time. This is the first time we have ever been bowled over by how well everything was done.

How it was pitched, the volunteers, the activities, the pace, the variety, the duration, the tangible enthusiasm of everyone involved, the venue/building, and the little touches like the music in the background which stopped the girls feeling self-conscious about discussing things, the biscuits to keep them going and water when they wanted it.  Whoever organised and planned this has done an incredible job and really understands children."

Teacher, Physics Dept. Ashford School

“I personally enjoy doing these types of activities. The staff here is very approachable and friendly. The different activities are very well-planned and enjoyable. Thank you for this great experience!

Women + STEM

"I would love to have been more aware in school of how wide and diverse the range of careers in STEM are and how they would allow me to be creative and provide a fun and rewarding career."

Dr. Claire Crowley, Pretty Curious studio host and a post-doctoral researcher in the field of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine at UCL

“I like the interaction I get to have with my friends, and how we work together to create this product that we are all proud of. I like getting to put my ideas forward and listening to everyone else to make everything even better!”

“It’s amazing and it’s helping to raise the aspiration of girls who might never have thought about science in a big way. It’s a real shame something like this isn’t in the curriculum for schools, its fab.” 

Amelia Bow, Teacher at Marlwood School, Alveston
