National Women in Engineering Day 2015‏

HHS_logo_transparent

Tuesday 23 June 2015 is National Women in Engineering Day, and to celebrate, Plexus is considering hosting an event that school students can attend to understand better what it is that Plexus do, and what sorts of Engineering roles there are.  While  this event is to have a focus on getting girls talking about Engineering as a potential career, Plexus aren’t  limiting attendance to just girls.

More information on National Women in Engineering Day can be found here: http://www.wes.org.uk/NWED

We would like to know how many pupils would be interested (and parents too) to go along, listen to a bit of a talk about what Plexus do, and go on a site tour?

Could anyone who interested in attending  please give their name to Mrs Richardson in Guidance?
