McLaren Visit Stormont!

To continue our term’s theme of ‘Celebrating Women’  we were excited to welcome the ‘Women in STEM Ambassadors’ from McLaren to talk to the girls about engineering, science, and the amazing opportunities these subjects can bring.  These women are involved in designing and testing supercars, and shared their knowledge with the girls. They talked about the details and the process of designing a supercar, thinking through the aerodynamics needed, the stress of speed and movement on parts of the car, the thermal dynamics, as well as safety.

The ambassadors set a challenge for the girls to design their own supercar, and, to help with inspiration, were given a tour of one of their McLaren designs! This was an interactive session, for which the girls were really engaged and very enthusiastic to learn about women in engineering. The girls had some creative ideas, and presented their designs to the Ambassadors, who chose a winner. All girls received a gift from McLaren, which was a lovely touch!

We are continually looking at different ways to inspire the girls for future career choices and opportunities that are on offer, including highlighting the importance of the STEM subjects. Thank you so much @mclaren for coming to visit us at Stormont School, we know you have inspired the next generation of women in STEM!
