Congratulations to Year 8 pupils, Katie, Alice and Caitlin, all three girls entered a STEM competition relating to ‘Influential Women in Engineering’ and have received 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize! To commemorate International Women in Engineering Day, Leeds University launched a competition which was opened up to schools that have been taking part in the ‘E for Engineering’ project. Last academic year the project saw a group of high attaining girls visit Leeds University to take part in workshops looking at influential women in Engineering and had an inspirational talk from former head of the women in engineering society. 

Pupils were set a challenge to design a poster celebrating famous women in engineering. This was all organised virtually during lockdown and the girls showed self-motivation and came up with some amazing work. 

The winner received £150 amazon voucher and the two runners up received £100 vouchers. Well done.
