King's High and Warwick Prep STEM Club
Stemillions is a joint club for Years 6-9 at King’s and Warwick Prep. The girls meet every Thursday afternoon at Warwick Prep. They look at inspirational women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), and carry out activities relating to their chosen role models’ STEM interests. Activities include: making edible ‘Suns’ and animal cells, designing their own make-up and STEM book covers, and making scratch holograms. The girls’ work is posted on Twitter each week, and their STEM role-models often retweet the girls’ activities. Ashveer and Annabel (Year 8) have done sterling work as Chief Stemillions Officers. Last term, Stemillions achieved ‘Gold Status’ on the national Stemettes leader board. Stemettes is a national social enterprise, encouraging girls aged 5-22 to consider STEM careers, with a stated aim of increasing the UK’s female STEM workforce from 21% to 30% plus. Given that 50% of King’s pupils go on to study STEM subjects, King’s and Warwick Prep pupils are making their mark, right from the start.
