829: More Girls Please

Despite advances in education in Science Technology Engineering and Maths over the past few years, the proportion of females taking STEM subjects at third level is still a problem.

Is it lack of interest? Lack of teaching resources? or getting over the old idea that some subjects are just for boys and others for girls.

Lorna Martyn is Head of Technology with Fidelity Investments and she spoke to Niall about how important role models are, in getting more girls involved in STEM and even bringing back women who have left the field.

826: Winners

This week we are saying congratulations to Dublin-based Grafton Architects who have won the 2020 Pritzker prize, the first two women to share what is regarded internationally as architecture’s highest honour.

Grafton Architects caught our attention a long time ago as they have some great ideas on how to make our world low-carbon at street level.  With Extinction Rebellion, increases in carbon tax, and the Green Party playing a significant part in our new government, we thought this  would be a great opportunity to replay our interview from last year with founder Yvonne Farrell, who spoke to our editor Niall Kitson.
