Inspiring the Future
Rawmarsh Year 8 girls had a fantastic opportunity to celebrate International Women in Engineering and Science Day. Hosted by King Edward VII school they attended an event to inspire female secondary students to consider careers in engineering and computer science through informative speeches by successful female engineers, workshops giving them the opportunity to experiment with cutting edge technologies and the chance to interview successful business professionals working in these fields. We all fell in love with the robots (!) and had a unique opportunity to hear the life stories of ‘ordinary’ women who had gone on to achieve ‘extraordinary’ success.
