STEM Sisters

Established by Sir Peter Ogden in 1999, we are a charitable trust that exists to promote the teaching and learning of physics.

STEM Sisters is a Year 5/6 arts-based STEM project to inspire new generations to pursue an education and career in STEM. It showcases historical female scientists and mathematicians whose work is often less well-known but who have contributed in so many ways to major developments in our lives today, including (amongst many others) Caroline Herschel, Mae Jemison, Maria Sybilla Merian, Hypatia and Wang Zhenyi.

A range of digital teaching plans and resources are available on the STEM Sisters (opens in new window). They will help embed the life and works of these pioneering women across the Key Stage 2 curriculum, enriching learning and stimulating interest.
