School students inspire females into engineering

29th November 2017

KS3 and KS4 students were invited again this year to participate in HETA’s Females into e Engineering poster competition.

We invited over 100 schools in the region to design a poster that inspired Females into Engineering as well as raising awareness of HETA’s apprenticeship programme.

The competition was split into two categories KS3 and KS4. We received over 150 poster entries with a mixture from each category- many schools throughout the Humber region took part.
There were many poster entries that really delivered the brief of the competition and HETA staff finally decided on two winning entries from KS3 and KS4 as they captured the message that Females can be engineers too.

KS3 Winner- Yr 9 Jessica Stanley from South Hunsley School
KS4 Winner- Yr 10 Keeley White from Frederick Gough School

It is the second time Frederick Gough has won the KS4 entry. Last year’s winner Courtney Davey who is now in Year 11, had her poster distributed to all schools in the region.

Both winners were really happy with their winning entries and after speaking with them, they had many aspiring careers prospects including an archaeologist.

The winning posters will soon be distributed in schools in the Yorkshire and Humber to raise awareness of our apprenticeship programme as well as the message that Females can be engineers too!
