Best Engineering Event Award.

The school was received a national award by Engineering UK and the British Science Association for an event during National Science and Engineering week – Best Engineering Event Award

The event Girls can do it too on Wednesday 16th March, had more than girls from schools across the county spent a day at Avenue Campus exploring science and engineering  through 

  • drama, 
  • workshops
  •  keynote speakers.

The credit goes to Tricia Goodchild,  Champion for Girls in the school who also recently won the WISE outreach award.

Some of these activities were supported by internal Widening Participation fund provided by DELTAE:

"It also illustrates how Widening Participation project funding can  support innovative activity   and enhance collaboration  between various WP projects  led by different Schools.( eg, the Girls into Engineering event and the Act Out theatre group) "- Rohini Corfield (Widening Participation Co-ordinator, DELTAE, University of Northampton)

This work forms part of the continued commitment from the School to Outreach activities.
