St Catharine’s Girls’ Choir celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Today is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which is being marked this year with the launch of a new outreach project called STEM in SONG. This important new project will seek to engage girls in science, technology, engineering and maths through music, and St Catharine’s Girls’ Choir have recorded an inspiring new song written by Gwyneth Herbert with words by 14-year-old Isabella Bridge, the video of which you can enjoy below:

Several events are planned for the STEM in SONG project, including a new work by Christopher Fox called Mendeleev’s Dream: The Periodic Table in Music. Fox says of his piece, ‘Mendeleev’s Dream is intended to work both as music in its own right and also as a way of enabling young people to learn about the Periodic Table. There’s all the fun of putting together a piece of music that can expand from just a few voices to a huge gathering of musicians but at the same time it’s a way of discovering of the interconnectedness of the elements.'
