STEM role model Charlotte Bailey visits her former school to talk about her work as an apprentice at the Sellafield nuclear facility.
Charlotte left school without any science A-levels, but has gained a range of science qualifications through her apprenticeship. Her job is to check everything is running safely at the plant by performing chemical analysis of samples taken around the site.
Returning to St Benedict's High School in Whitehaven, she demonstrates some fun science activities, sharing her enthusiasm for the subject.
The students watch her set off a mock chip pan fire; create a screaming jelly baby, a whoosh bottle, and a mini volcano; and demonstrate how to make the perfect soap bubble.
