Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your post. As someone who has worked in both single-sex schools, you are in the unique position of being able to assess the pre-conceived stereotypes that exist between the genders in both settings. It is very interesting to hear your experience of the different extra-curricular activities that were offered in both schools. While not surprising, its does highlight why programmes and initiatives need to be put in place in third-level education and beyond to encourage more women to become involved in STEM Careers. The logo of ‘can’t see, can’t be’ that is used in ladies sports rings true in this case (for both genders)>
