Coleg Sir Gâr hosted an event which encouraged girls to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths), which was supported by industry and engineering specialists.
The event was organised by leading skills body, Engineering Conduction Industry Training Board (ECITB) in conjunction with the college, Valero and the Regional Learning and Skills Partnership South West & Mid Wales.
Year eight students from Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire schools took part in a hands-on technology workshop and engineering problem-solving activities as well as a robotics challenge and chemistry experiments with female engineers at Valero refinery in Pembrokeshire.
Adam Twells, head of engineering at Coleg Sir Gâr said: “We are very excited about getting involved in this initiative and to try and enthuse the next generation of potential female engineers providing hands-on activities using STEM-related technology.”
