Women and Money: A Career in Science and Tech
We all know that there aren't enough women taking up careers in science and technology, often referred to as STEM.

Meanwhile Sophie Graham, National Careers Service Adviser, looks at the academic route into engineering or science if you decide you want to come to it later in life.
