Inspiring future female scientists and ecologists – ‘Girls Go Free’ with Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust

Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust (SRWT) want to encourage more girls to be excited about doing science and to inspire the next generation of female scientists and ecologists. So as part of the launch of Electricity, an exciting new school offer from the Outdoor Learning team, we will be offering ‘Girls Go Free!’ on all bookings on the new session until the end of July 2020.

Electricity held at the @E.On BlackBurn Meadows biomass plant in Rotherham, is perfect for engaging Key Stage 2 pupils in the science of electricity and sustainable energy as they get hands-on experimenting and creating their own electrical circuits and experience different methods of generating electricity.

Sarah Lamb, SRWT Outdoor Leaning Officer said,

“As International Women’s Day falls within British Science Week we thought it would be perfect to launch our new session with the ‘Girls Go Free’ offer. This allows schools to make savings on bookings and also highlights the need to get girls excited about science early to increase more females into STEM subjects and professions such as ecology and conservation later in life.”

The Outdoor Learning team at SRWT help primary schools across Sheffield and Rotherham improve their teaching and learning with a range of curriculum based experiences and services. Contact 0114 263 4335 or for full terms and conditions of the offer and to book today.
