Could the Stargazer Lottie Doll inspire a new generation of female scientists?

 The Big Issue UK 29 February 2019

Gravity waves are causing ripples in the cosmos – but so is the little doll circling Earth on the International Space Station. The Stargazer Lottie Doll was designed by space-obsessed, six-year-old Abigail, to inspire a new generation of female scientists. But Lottie has her work cut out. Back on Earth, the outlook for women in Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects is less than stellar. The Big Issue asks why more women don’t gravitate towards a career in science or maths. (912 Words) - By Lucy Sweet
