We were delighted to welcome Rob Winser and Sian Pearson from the company William Hare into School on Monday.
William Hare is a global engineering company with its headquarters nearby on Brandlesholme Road and they provide steel solutions to innovative projects across the world.
Over 20 students, both boys and girls, from Year 10 and above attended the talk. Rob and Sian told the students a little about their own background in Engineering and described some of the aspects of working in the field as well as routes into becoming an Engineer.
Students got the chance to ask questions as well as experiment with some of the structural models which Rob and Sian brought in.
All pupils gained a lot from the presentation and it was pleasing to see them engage in meaningful discussion about careers in STEM subjects.
In a few years' time, maybe one of our own students will be delivering a similar talk!
