CDT student leads engineering workshop with STEMSoc
Joshua Wengraf, year 2 CDT student, is the cofounder and chair of STEMSoc, a volunteering society whose aim is to encourage more children from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects and to help resolve the gender gap in these fields.
On March 6th he led a team of volunteers with IntoUniversity to deliver an engineering workshop where they taught year 10 students about civil engineering using a bridge building activity. This involved the students building bridges out of paper and cardboard and testing their strength using weights. They also took the students on a tour around campus and discussed what is like to study at university.
