Inspiring STEM within the BME community

One thing I'm passionate about is providing opportunities for kids from black minority ethnic backgrounds to explore their STEM options. Being involved within this community brings to light the practical challenges that some of these kids face.  I reviewed the situation here. In a lot of these instances, lack of awareness and information remains a major factor. Whiles I can't fix a nationwide situation, I choose to work within my community to inspire a few kids. The feedback is always so rewarding. 

Had such a fulfilling time at the royal society summer science exhibition with these kids. I'm hoping to arrange STEM based work experience placements for about 5 other kids so if anyone can be of assistance, do please get in touch.
