Student Women's Engineering Society (WESBath)

Women In Engineering Society (WES) - newly-found at the University of Bath

International Women's Engineering Day 2017

📥  Event, Outreach

On Friday, 23 June 2017, WESBath celebrated INWED 2017 by hosting a group of female school students onto Campus to take part in a morning of engineering.

We welcomed girls from Sheldon School in Chippenham and the IKB Academy in Keynsham and started off with a short introduction from Professor Semali Perera and Past Chair of WESBath Jemma Rowlandson. Following that the girls were offered a variety of activities including a water filtration challenge (Chemical Engineering), making a 'steady-hand' game (Electrical & Electronic Engineering) and attempting to save an egg by designing a parachute (Aerospace Engineering)!

The girls learnt how we encounter engineering in every day life and how engineering is very much for girls.
