Dare To Be Different

Friday, June 22, 2018

8 girls from Year 5 and 2 girls from Year 4 attended Dare To Be Different yesterday at Santa Pod Raceway, and what a fantastic experience it was! The aim of the day was to demonstrate how, regardless of gender, everyone has the potential to be successful in the world of motorsport and STEM careers.

The girls took part in a number of amazing activities, including resuscitation, a workout, a pit stop challenge, presenting with Sky Sports, a STEM challenge, reaction time challenges and opportunities to meet some of the racers. Lunch was spent on the grass bank overlooking the race track, watching drag racing! The day ended with a presentation to each of the schools of a fabulous goodie bag, which included a copy of The Female Lead, a book about sixty inspirational women, from many walks of life, who have changed the world in a variety of fields.
