A group of year 9 girls attended Ada Lovelace day at Nationwide Building Society in Northampton to learn about the type of careers they could aspire to using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects.  They met with female employees of Nationwide who explained how they had achieved their present careers in the building society, and how their plans had changed since school.  The girls took part in several tasks including a codebreaking challenge and were able to experience  "Nationwide Now" where the students were using the technology to speak to each other via video link, which is used by Nationwide to meet with their customers.
