Boy1 started an EPQ, he was looking at gender roles in professional wrestling, but dropped it before Christmas as he wasn't keeping up with the workload.

all my boys started EPQ and their school gives them the chance to carry on with it or not. The work that they did for them got recycled for other aspects of their studies and the skills learnt were very useful. My daughter (same school) is planning on completing hers. More universities are taking them into consideration when giving offers. My advice would be pick a subject that interests and continue with it if it doesn't detract from other work.

She will stand out already being female and wanting to do physics I reckon...There’s plenty of outreach stuff for women wanting to get into STEM by the way
