Accenture together with STEMettes and Schools North East ran a ‘technology for girls’ event at the Sage Gateshead in order to help teach girls how to write basic HTML and build web pages and to also raise the profile of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). At this event representatives from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research spoke to over 300 girls aged 11-13 about Mitochondrial disease and careers in science.
