Last week we were invited to attend The Women in Engineering day at QinetiQ which gave the girls the opportunity to experience flight simulators, space technologies and other high-tech facilities.

In the Innovation Facility, women engineers from within QinetiQ spoke of their experiences and took questions. The girls then worked in four workshops looking at engineering, acoustics, the space mission to Mercury and virtual reality in training. We were delighted that Lily was awarded the prize for the best innovative idea after explaining her idea of an electric vaccine. We would very much like to offer a sincere thank you to QinetiQ for offering the girls this amazing opportunity.
