BAE Systems Barrow
I and two other STEM Ambassadors from BAE attended Walney School's opening of their new Innovation Centre which has been built to celebrate their status as a specialist Engineering School.
The day started with presentations on engineering and a discussion of the pupil's perception of what engineers are and what they do. We fielded a few questions about our job and sat down and helped the pupils brainstorm ideas related to engineering. We then moved on to the more practical part of the day.
I joined Jo introducing the reception class at Sacred Heart School to Bee Bots. It was quite an experience firstly a chance to visit my old school 44 years down the line. I found Mary who I was at school with who is now a teacher. The school layout has changed since my day, for the better.
Bee Bots Jo said that I was the first ambassador to join her with the Bee Bots, you should try it.
