"Today sees the launch of the new Women of Science campaign, founded by Uo M Material Science Ph D Student Rhys Archer.School of Materials blog editor Fran Slater found out more about this campaign to promote women across science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.The cost is covered by Medicare (in full or partially).
Part of her prize for this impressive victory was some funding for an outreach programme.
Rhys chose to produce the Women of Science campaign and today, December 5th 2016, is launch day.

Yes we have Einstein, Marie Curie etc which can spark an interest, but as a role model they can be completely unrelatable – seen as lone geniuses who were infinitely intelligent.
So I also wanted to present women in STEM as real people who could be related to…
