JOBS FOR THE GIRLS.

Science and engineering are not favoured by women as careers.

But, on the basis of get 'em young, some 20 Glasgow school pupils are taking part in the WISE Outlook Programme at Stow College at the moment.

WISE stands for Women into Science and Engineering, and the 13 and 14-year-olds from local schools will discover lots of fun aspects of science in order to whet their appetites for jobs in this particular field.

The girls will gain hands-on Internet practice at the Java cybercafe in Glasgow.

They will also visit Scottish Telecom's network control centre in Kirkintilloch and Edinburgh's International Science Festival.

Stow College is hosting the programme with sponsorship from The Engineering Council, Engineering Employers Federation and the Engineering and Marine Training Authority.
