Vorderman is very positive about encouraging young people to maximize their scientific potential. She coaches children via her Maths Factor project and is delighted things are changing for women in scientific fields.

“It’s about making it mainstream. When I did my first solo flight, I was the first person to do it live on television, and suddenly there was a plethora of women booking lessons, saying, “I’ve never thought about that, I thought men did that!””
