The Royal Air Force

Working together to give girls the skills and confidence to learn about STEM

We want to show girls that STEM is for them, not just for boys

Our Girls' Attitudes Survey 2018 found that 48% of girls aged 11-21 want more representation of women in science and technology. Girlguiding is working with the Royal Air Force to develop activities that will provide girls with an insight into STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects.

How we work together

The Royal Air Force is supporting Girlguiding to create unit meeting activities that will inspire girls’ interest in STEM.

Sharing their expert knowledge, the Royal Air Force will empower girls and young women to develop life skills in STEM subjects through activities and experiences.

Girls will have the opportunity to have interstellar adventures, learn how planes fly, decipher codes and discover how radar and rollercoasters work - to name a few activities!
