We were delighted to have 16 year old Tyla join our team for a weeks work experience over the Easter holidays. Read her blog below to see what she got up to and why work experience placements are so important to inspire the next generation of engineers.
I am 16 years old and in my first year of sixth form, currently studying Maths and Science A-Levels with general interests in playing netball, reading fiction books and arts / crafts. Arts and crafts specifically led me to choose Design Technology for my GCSEs, all of which led me to consider engineering or architecture as a career.
During DT, we studied building design for some time and modelled a room, leading on to attending webinars that helped me to understand the importance of Engineering, specifically Structural Engineering. It seemed an interesting mixture of Design, Science and Maths – a blend of my academic interests – and I wanted to find out more.
