Maths4Girls

Use relatable, inspiring role-models to support pupils to discover where maths can take them!

Maths4Girls

We want to instill confidence and inspire ambition.
We debunk the myth that maths is for males, and encourage more girls to choose maths.
We support girls to discover where maths can take them …. and how it can change the world!

Using Maths4Girls’ relatable, inspirational role models in the classroom can combat unconscious gender bias, increase visibility of women in maths, and increase awareness of further study routes and careers that use maths.

Available online, or in the classroom when restrictions permit, Maths4Girls volunteers share their career journey, they explain what their job is and how they got there. They will also allow time to answer pupil questions.

Maths4Girls speakers come from a range of maths-based business and industry sectors including engineering, manufacturing, healthcare, sciences and finance. Where appropriate, they will link their job to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and how their job makes a difference.

Your event can be at a date and time that is convenient for you. For an online event we suggest 30 minutes to an hour, and 2 to 4 speakers

Available for all pupils, aged 11 years and over.
