A budding young Cyber scientist at Solihull Sixth Form College has recently won first place in a national STEM competition.
Subhana Dudu (aged 17, from Birmingham) took part in the In2scienceUK programme. She participated in lectures and workshops about a variety of different STEM careers. The In2scienceUK initiative empowers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their potential by providing life-changing opportunities that give them insights into careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
“The lectures were all about very recent discoveries, so we were given an insight into currently developing research. I met lots of scientists and PhD students. There were several competitions going on, such as creating a research poster, a video, a blog and many more. I created a video on the Exomars 2022 mission and my entry won first place, which I was really happy with. I came across In2scienceUK via College and decided to apply for it. I’m grateful I did.”
Subhana is studying Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics at A level and hopes to take Computer Science further in the future.
“During the In2scienceUK program I saw the amount of research that is going on into machine learning and I found it to be really exciting. I also like the idea of studying Cybersecurity further too.”
