GG in the Media
Generating Genius PM Victoria Oladele and Junior Genius student Sushmitha Dachepalli talk about the exciting Google Girls Coding programme
Generating Genius partnered with L’Oréal to give Uni Genius students the opportunity to see science in an industrial context, at the L’Oréal Young Scientist Centre based at the Royal Institution. The students took part in a number of workshops in practical chemistry, physics and engineering, and were also given a masterclass in marketing from L’Oréal staff, at L’Oréal HQ in Hammersmith, London.
Listen to the BBC Radio 4 broadcast featuring Generating Genius, entitled ‘Bright, Black And Looking For Work’. The programme reflects on the journey that the original group of GG boys have taken to the country’s leading universities, through GG, and asks what difference they thought the programme had made to them.
