Celebrate the achievements of a variety of inspirational women on International Women’s Day. This resource pack focuses on women’s achievements in science.Women have contributed to important scientific discoveries over the centuries but they were not always recognised for their contributions at the time. With this assembly script, supported by PPT slides, you can teach pupils about significant work that female scientists have completed throughout history, and discuss the idea that someone’s sex should not be a barrier to achievement in any field.

This resource pack includes

  • Assembly PPT slides
  • Teacher notes and script
