Girls Into STEM Day at Sony

Fourteen Year 8 and 9 girls took part in a fabulous Girls into STEM day at Sony and the Waterton Technology Centre Bridgend on Tuesday. The pupils were given a guided tour of the impressive factory, where they saw "robots" working alongside engineers to produce the latest technology in high spec TV and film cameras as well as the new generation of computer processors; the Raseberry Pi. The pupils also met up with  Jessica Leigh Jones; one of Sony's inspiring female engineers. Jessica had visited us at school three years ago when she had just been awarded UK Young Engineer of the Year. It was good to catch up with her and see how her career had progressed as well as tell her all about the STEM successes we have had at school.
