National Women in Engineering Day Celebration


On the 23rd of June it was National Women in Engineering Day and the STEM team took this opportunity to encourage pupils to celebrate the day.  Some pupils in Year 7 and 8 took part in some STEM activities led by Dr. Baljit Ghatora, who is a Senior Lecturer in Forensic and Analytical Chemistry at Kingston University.  Dr Ghatora showed the pupils some real life applications of Resistant Materials, and it allowed the pupils to see the cross-curricular link of Technology and Science.  To continue the celebration Year 10 and 12 were given an Engineering inspired Thought for the Day and the girls were given an opportunity to sign up to SPARXX; an organisation that aims to inspire young women to look into careers in the STEM field.
