Sharing our experiences & things we have learnt from school and university
Our recent posts…
As 2SistersinSTEM we are incredibly interested in the perception of STEM in young people. I specifically am intrigued by the current thoughts and perception of Aerospace Engineering in female identifying students. I am studying Aerospace Engineering at university and an one of very few females on my course. I am currently looking into how toContinue reading “Perception of Aerospace Engineering in Female Students – Research”
Maisie here! I have now come to the end of my first semester of my final year of university and I thought I would don my best Christmas jumper for the occasion! I study Aerospace Engineering at the University of Sheffield and had a year out to do my internship in 2019-2020. It has beenContinue reading “University During Covid-19”
One of the many perks of going to university in Sheffield is being so incredibly close to the Peak District. I have been to the peaks a few times in my first and second year but not ever for a proper ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ style hike. So a few weeks ago some friends and IContinue reading “Peak Hike To Plane Crash Site”
Hi it’s Maisie here! We have had a bit of a break from the blog over the summer but we are now back and ready to go – I have even got a swanky fringe so it’s all new round here! It is now nearing the time that I will be going back to university,Continue reading “Pots, Pans and Panic – Heading Back to Uni!”
Hi, Lily here! For this week’s post I am going to be talking about the reactions I have faced when talking to people about the fact I did a physics degree. My thoughts on the conversations I have had, how the responses have and continue to affect me and ultimately why I think working toContinue reading “‘But you don’t look like a physicist!’”
I really cannot believe (for one tiny second) that I graduated from university 2 years ago today! It was Friday 13th July 2018, which does have an air of unluckiness to it! But – thank goodness – it turned out to be a brilliantly lucky day for me! I had made it through my PhysicsContinue reading “2 Years On From Finishing Uni”
Hi, Lily here! Today I’m going to be chatting about why I decided to do a Physics degree. What inspired me and ultimately how I made my decision to apply to university to study Physics. Did I listen to my head or my heart? Were there any particular events or moments which helped me makeContinue reading “Why Physics – What Inspired Me To Study Physics?”
So how did we become 2 Sisters In STEM? What paths did we take to get where we are today? We thought a good way to kick off our blog would be to do a proper introduction and tell you a bit about ourselves. The journeys we have followed from school, through A Levels, toContinue reading “How We Became 2 Sisters Working In STEM”
Hi! We are Lily and Maisie, two sisters who have managed to muddle our way to start careers in STEM. There have been ups and downs, brilliant achievements and difficult challenges but all those experiences have led us to where we are today, and we hope sharing our stories will make it all seem aContinue reading “Welcome to 2 Sisters In STEM!”
