The Feminine Touch Makes a Microscope Eight months ago the girls in our picture had never handled a saw. Last week, as they neared the end of the Science Laboratory Technician’s Course at Hornchurch College of Further Education they tackled their practical examination and each made a dissection microscope.

Said tutor of the course Mr. David Chaplin: “Girls outnumber boys four to three this year and they have made splendid progress. It’s no mean achievement for 17- and 18-year-olds to tackle a delicate job like this.

“At the beginning of the course they could hardly cope with a screwdriver. Now they handle power drills and soldering irons with ease.” At the completion of the course all the girls have jobs waiting for them. Alice Lesslie and Janet Pollard go to an industrial chemical research laboratory. Hilary Pease is to work at the Physiology Department of University College of London and Mary Bibbings is at The Equine Research Centre.
