- By the time they reach A level, over three times as many boys as girls are taking physics, one of the reasons why women continue to be under-represented in most occupations involving science, maths and engineering. This programme takes three young women back to school to find out from the girls themselves what it is that turns them off physics, and what can be done to change things. Rosie Walton, who's doing a PhD in particle physics, Laura Kennedy, the features editor of CosmoGIRL! Magazine and Michelle Dowling, an engineer who worked for British Gas for fifteen years, observe two Year 10 Physics lessons at Haydon School, a mixed comprehensive in north west London. Head of Science Dave Dennis gives an applied science lesson on electric currents and Likhon Muhammad gives a physics lesson on electrical resistance. After the lessons the three observers discuss them with the students to find out what they think and then feed back to the teachers at the end of the day.
