Black people are currently underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine, making it harder for young Black people who are passionate about STEMM to understand what their next steps should be.
As part of our work to enable our young Black students to overcome the barriers which may exclude them from a career in STEMM, we are supporting our talented scientists and mathematicians to participate in a four-part webinar series for young people of Black African and Black-Carribbean heritage in Years 7-13 hosted by Imperial College London. The webinars give students the chance to find out what it's really like to study STEMM at university, the steps they can take to secure a place to study STEMM at a top university, and the incredible careers it can lead to.
Check back for updates where students feedback what they've learned by participating in the webinars.
