Student Wins STEM Competition

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.

Subhana commented:

“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.”
