Workshop Highlights

Twenty-one students from London with exceptional ability and interest in any area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) were selected to be Rosalind Franklin STEM Ambassadors. In September 2018, they attended a two-day workshop at University College London (UCL).

We set up the workshop hoping to inspire the students, but in a short amount of time they ended up inspiring us. Like the STEM Role Models they met, these students are looking to break down barriers and achieve trail blazing science. Check out some of our favourite memories in the pictures below.


The Grant Museum of Zoology

The Zoology Museum and the observation of the MRI scan really inspired and justified my interest in learning biology for the future.
— Sobinya, STEM Ambassador

Birkbeck-UCL Centre for Neuroimaging 

The workshop exceeded my expectations. I wasn’t sure what to look forward to, but I heard so many fascinating stories, learned a lot about science and boosted my confidence!
— Chloe, STEM Ambassador

Inspiring Women in STEM

I am grateful that Professor Viding used her prize money to encourage and support the STEM path and I can honestly say that what took place and what is to come is priceless. It feels like a draw-bridge has been put down and the girls have been provided with some tools for the challenges ahead.
— K. Richards, parent

Group Presentations

at the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre

It was a pleasure to see the girls present on Tuesday. They are still brimming with extra confidence and know-how and long may that continue into their chosen careers.
— M. Smith, Maths Teacher
