Since March 2014, the Institute of Physics has been running a project called'Improving Gender Balance', which explores how schools can increase the proportion of girls taking A-level physics. Last year, the project sponsored two zones in the I'm a Scientist online event. Students from our partner schools took part in live online chats with a panel of five scientists, with the aim of increasing the students' engagement with science and scientists.
