Sinn Féin candidate for East Derry, Caoimhe Archibald said it is important to highlight the potential of careers in STEM to girls.

The former vice Chair of the All-Party Group on STEM said:

“It is very important to ensure girls are encouraged to take on STEM subjects for GCSE, ‘A’ Level and degree level, this must start at a young age.

“It is important there are no barriers, real or perceived, to girls pursuing STEM subjects; it is also important they are, for want of a better word, ‘marketed’ towards girls.

“STEM subjects can lead to a very wide range of careers which I, as a scientist, can attest to.

“It is important the role of women in STEM and their achievements are highlighted and to have female role models in STEM type careers for girls to look towards.

“Events like #GirlsinSTEM taking place today and others such as the Science Festival are important in doing this.”
