People like Me Resource Pack
WISE, sponsored by Network Rail, are launching the People like Me resource pack on 8 September 2015 at the National Media Museum in Bradford.
This pack is the first novel approach to increasing the number of girls in science in 30 years. Research conducted by WISE in the Not for people like me report, found that talking about scientists and engineers and what they do often doesn’t attract girls. Instead, allowing girls to look at the sort of person they are and how their attributes correspond to roles in these sectors does. The pack includes an app for girls to match their personality type with a type of person like them working in science, technology or engineering.
