Girls Into Construction and Civil Engineering
Over 150 female pupils took part in our ‘Girls Into Construction and Civil Engineering’ day, as part of our award-winning #ThisAyrshireGirlCan campaign.
The S1 and S2 pupils enjoyed three workshops each throughout the day, in either: brickwork, carpentry and joinery, civil engineering, construction management, electrical engineering, land surveying, painting and decorating, plumbing, and quantity surveying.
The schools involved were Cumnock Academy, Girvan Academy, Grange Academy, Kilmarnock Academy, Kyle Academy, Largs Academy, Loudoun Academy and Stewarton Academy.
Thanks to Survey Connection, Rowan Timber and Dekors for kindly donating materials for the workshops. Also thanks to our guest speakers: Jill Fisher, Claire Hyslop, Laura Love, Hannah Simpson and Janice Steel.
