“The Academy has been created as part of the University of Lincoln’s Athena SWAN project, which acknowledges the institution’s commitment to advancing the representation of women in science, engineering and technology, and aims to encourage girls of secondary school age to consider post-16 study in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects and to pursue science and technology careers. But most of all it’s about showing them that science can be fun!” Professor Belinda Colston, Athena SWAN Coordinator
“We want to inspire young girls and open their eyes to the possibilities of what they can achieve. This programme will give them the leadership skills and confidence to challenge any preconceptions that may prevent them from being successful in any STEM field.” Dr Nicole Fielding, Equalities Project Manager
