Ten years ago, Bethany Harrod was the girl at school who liked maths. Today, as she looks forward to graduating from the University of Sunderland, she has the world at her feet.
Bethany, 22, is among an increasing number of teenage girls and young women opting to take the STEM ( science, technology, engineering and mathematics) route into a high-paying career. Today marks ‘Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day’ and Bethany, like many of her contemporaries, is keen to bust the myth that women and engineering are an unhappy coupling.
