On Friday 1st March, 6 Year 10 students attended the Women in Engineering event, held at Wiltshire College.
They had a good day exploring the different companies and universities, offering engineering careers and courses. The girls were able to test their engineering skills in a range of activities, such as surveying, working out chemicals and infections in a Harry Potter themed task and testing scents used in cosmetics.
We ended the session, using coding to control Lego Mindstorm robots, which became a little competitive as the girls tried to move their robots around. The girls were able to see where engineering could take them, with some brilliant female role models.
A big thank you to Mr Pitcher and Mrs Crowther, for stepping in at the last minute to get us there and back.
