International Women in Engineering Week
“ STEM subjects make up our school and make up our future. In learning about them and using them, we feel we are having a small positive impact of our own. ”Eva, Year 9
At Royal High School Bath, we are committed to giving students the opportunity to help address the gender imbalance and create confident and knowledgeable girls to help pave the way for the future. That's why we encourage students of all ages to explore their passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is an international awareness campaign that raises the profile of women in engineering and focuses attention on the amazing career opportunities available to women and girls in this exciting industry.
With such a focus in the media recently on the impact of gender stereotypes in maths and science careers being perceived as ‘male domains’, we are hoping to empower budding STEM enthusiasts at our school and help them to make their mark on the world.
For INWED 2021, we are therefore excited to announce a week-long celebration of all things STEM to celebrate the contribution of women in science, engineering and maths throughout the world, and inspire our students to explore STEM-related subjects.
Follow us throughout the week on our social channels to see what we've been up to!

“ STEM is about getting to know how everything in our daily life works; how the ecosystem and the universe are connected, and how the human body is built. The fact that there are no boundaries to learning is what fascinates me the most.”Magdalena, Year 12
