Today, we started to organise the workshops and the key engineering disciplines that we want to showcase at our school visits. The girls were split up according to their discipline and tasked with creating engaging workshops that we could take out to schools with us. The disciplines are;
Civil Engineering and Architecture
Biomedical Engineering and Science
Our Aeronautical girls teamed up with the Electrical engineering students from the University of Rwanda as Aeronautical is not currently offered, however, many students enrolled in Mechanical engineering are keen to go into the Aeronautical sector after graduating. It was great to see the girls working together to come up with ideas for the workshops and testing the equipment that we had brought over with us – courtesy of ESPRC Circuits Team and STAR Refrigeration. Things are now coming together as the team prepare posters and gather equipment to take out to schools in the next week.
