The Spotlight focus this week was Civil Engineering and we were thrilled that Lucy Scott from Sir Robert McAlpine was on hand to tell us about life as a Civil Engineer.
It was amazing to hear about the projects Lucy has been involved with, including the new roof at the Number One Court at Wimbledon. Lucy showcased a variety of different structures that Sir Robert McAlpine have designed, developed and built, including the Eden Project, the 2012 Olympic Stadium and the famous Harry Potter Bridge!
The presentation gave us a real flavour of a fantastic industry for creative thinkers and problem solvers. In January we will host several follow up STEM workshops with activities relating to construction.
A huge thank you to Lucy for giving up her time to inspire us!
