Opinion: Empowering young women to progress in STEM

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter


The future of the world will be shaped by STEM disciplines, so it has never been more important for our students to learn science. Today’s young people are wonderfully committed to improving the environment. They are concerned about issues like climate change, protecting our species from habitat loss and extinction, and feeding the world as populations grow. But advocating and calling for change will only go so far. By learning diverse STEM skills, they can help find solutions to challenges like sustainable energy, and contribute to the economic growth in global industries such as defence, space, quantum technology and renewables.
