There is a gender imbalance in the number of pupils in the UK studying sciences and languages. The Gender Action programme, an initiative created by the Institute of Physics, and supported by King's College London, UCL Institute of Education, and the University Council of Modern Languages, seeks to change this by encouraging a whole-school approach to challenging stereotypes. As part of King's commitment to the scheme, academics have launched a King's Innovation undergraduate course, also called Gender Action, which teaches students how to think critically about gender, the sciences and languages, and create resources that can be shared in schools.
