Exeter College - Women in Construction Taster Day

On Friday 22nd January five year 9 girls took part in the Exeter College Women in Construction Event held at the Exeter College’s Construction Training Centre at Sowton, Exeter.

It was a unique event, aimed at introducing girls to the employment opportunities within the construction industry and highlighting some of the careers that they can aim for in the sector such as architecture, civil engineering, quantity surveying, plumbing, carpentry, electrical installation and many more.

The day consisted of a programme of practical workshops. The girls, Maisie Petrie, Molly Paterson Stack, Ruby Tuckley, Olivia Brown and Rebecca Smitham had a really enjoyable and inspiring day.  Congratulations go to Maisie and Olivia who won the Civil Engineering prize for constructing the tallest tower out of spaghetti!
