Sarah Chapman was awarded a Barbara Cail Fellowship in 2016. The Barbara Cail STEM Fellowship aimed to research and identify effective and innovative ways for promoting participation of young people, particularly girls, in STEM fields during their education and subsequent careers.

The research included visits to schools, businesses, universities, government departments and communities all over the world, to find out what other OECD countries were doing that was advancing cultures of innovation and having an impact on the rate of engagement in STEM education.

This presentation will focus on best practice for engaging and sustain young people in STEM, in particular girls. This will include:

* understanding an effective STEM ecosystem & the importance of each stakeholder
* embedding key strategies to engage girls authentically in STEM
* exploring the key role partnerships play in empowering students in STEM

This session is suitable for: K-12
