St John’s Women in Engineering

On 22nd June 2022, St John’s Primary School, Derry was the host of the very first GEMX@School workshop to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day 2022. Year 6 and 7 girls had an amazing, hands-on experience being engineers, building and launching rockets, as well as designing and building geodesic domes.

In attendance were Emma and Sinead (E&I), Emily and Cait (GEMX), Damian and Gemma (TEREX), Charlotte (Nelipak) and finally Peter and Gerard from SENTINUS. A big congratulations to Maggie and Ariah, each winning a £50 voucher to Brunswick Moviebowl due to their excellent engineering work!
