I have always had an interest in science growing up and learning how things work. I went to university to study Physics to pursue this interest. I was one of a small number of female students and I realised that people’s perception of what a scientist/engineer is was completely wrong and I wanted to help change that. I worked as a STEM Ambassador at a variety of events telling people about STEM subjects. I realised I loved sharing my interest with others and doing so through practical activities. The STEM events offered by Smallpeice allow children to design and build their own ideas from scratch in a way which allows them to learn through their own creating. I really enjoy being a part of this and seeing people’s confidence grow as they explore skills they did not realise they had.
