News: Yes We Did!
Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated the launch of Yes We Can Too!
Our second kids activity book is for girls and boys aged 7 – 9 and includes cartoons, puzzles, and activities built around the real life characters of the six women above (left to right):
Sarah-Louise, the design engineer; Terri, the civil engineer; Aisha, the powergrid engineer; Sarah, the mechanical engineer; Amanda, the aeronautical engineer
All six women work in or around Sheffield, and several studied to be engineers in the city.
Paulette Edwards from BBC Radio Sheffield interviewed the six “book mates” about what they wanted to be when they were girls, and Terri, the civil engineer showed pictures of the 2000 tonne railway bridge that she was responsible for engineering, moving and putting in place at Hazel Grove.
Yes We Can Too! is a brilliant way to celebrate and show just some examples of women working in six different kinds of engineering jobs. We want it to inspire girls and boys to think about what they can do in the future, and keep all their options open.
The books are free, and we can also organise women in engineering events for local schools and community groups.
