It was a true privilege to watch our engineering pathways day unfold. The idea behind the day was to gather engineers from every stage of their careers and provide a shared space to allow free flowing conversation to inspire our next generation of STEM experts.
The Royal Academy of Engineering Connecting STEM Teachers Network North London (what a mouthful!) would like to extend a massive thank you to the STEM ambassadors Kingsley Ohuka (Mclaren), Imani Morgan (Sky), and Michael Pozzi (Institute of Mechanical Engineers), for being so honest, inspiring, and forthright with their journeys through engineering. We are extremely grateful to the UK Electronic Skills Foundation for sending along Nandni Jamnadas (Royal Holloway University of London), Otis Lee (University of Bristol), and Marcus Corbin (University of Southampton), whose rich knowledge of all things electronics and programming allowed the students to reach their full potential.
The students from Hornsey School for Girls, Oasis Academy Hadley, City of London Academy Highgate Hill, Woodside High School, and Alexandra Park School, impressed everyone on the day. The true joy of engineering is seeing the wide way in which people can find problems, create solutions, and systematically improve their design based on feedback. We hope that each of the teams will develop their projects further and share the videos they create of their progress. Well done all and we look forward to running a similar event next year.
