St Margaret’s was delighted to welcome more than 40 girls from schools throughout the UK to the second annual Women in Engineering Conference last month.
The three-day event was a collaboration between St Margaret's, the University of Aberdeen, BP and Skills Development Scotland.
The delegates came from schools from as afield as Jersey and Northern Ireland for the conference, which included an interactive programme with hands-on engineering-based tasks and speed mentoring sessions with female engineers.
St Margaret’s former pupil, Tamsin Lishman who, as Head of Group Programme Management Office for Centrica is a senior leader in the energy sector, travelled to Aberdeen for the conference to speak to the girls.
They were also treated to a demonstration of the racing car used by the TAU Racing Formula Student team, before taking part in an engineering team challenge.
There was also a visit to BP Headquarters at Dyce, Aberdeen.
