News The Hidden World of STEM 21.03.2024

Last Friday, we rounded off our STEM Week celebrations with a talk from three influential and successful women in STEM.

‘The Hidden World of STEM’ was organised by a group of Year 10 students, with the aim of igniting a passion for STEM subjects amongst their classmates. The event was also open to local state schools, parents and Godolphin staff.

The talk featured three current Godolphin parents who offered diverse perspectives on the field’s possibilities: Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram OBE, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Director of Clinical Innovation and Strategic Partnerships at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, and CEO and Founder of Proximie; Mrs. Dana Tobak CBE, CEO of Hyperoptic; and Dr. Rulande Rutgers, Process Technology Director at Johnson Matthey.

The talks were engaging and informative, covering various topics such as careers in chemical engineering, sustainable vehicles, virtual surgical training for less experienced staff, and the potential of faster broadband speeds in delivering digital solutions for the NHS.

It proved to be a fitting end to STEM Week as the talks sparked enthusiasm and discussion that we hope will inspire future STEM careers. Thank you to the Year 10 students who organised the event and to Dr Hachach-Haram, Mrs Tobak and Dr Rutgers for giving up their time.
