International Women in Engineering Day, Tarmac visit for a Yr 8 girls STEM event
Year 8 girls with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) had a great experience recently when Josie Morrisey (STEM Ambassador for Tarmac, Barnstone) came to school to deliver two hands-on Engineering workshops. There was an emphasis on creativity, problem solving and communication and the students both gained valuable experience and had a great time.
The girls performed brilliantly and the event hopefully got them thinking about possible career pathways in STEM.
Our thanks go to Tarmac for supporting this event and they will also shortly be hosting some of our year 10 students on site at the Cement works in Barnstone.
