University of Northampton winner at WISE Awards 2010

by Guest Blogger 5. December 2010 13:17

Congratulations to the University of Northampton on scooping the prestigious national WISE Award for Outreach 2010; and in particular to Tricia Goodchild, Champion for Girls into Engineering at the University.  Working with Senior Lecturers in Engineering, Computing and Environmental Science Tricia is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to encouraging girls to consider careers in engineering.  She is instrumental in putting together an exciting programme of events to engage with primary and secondary pupils, parents and teachers. “Successful female role models are the key to dispelling the myths surrounding girls in engineering and that they can consider wider options”, said Tricia.   Tricia was recently presented with the award by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, the Royal Patron of WISE (Women into Science, Engineering and Construction).  See pictures and read more about WISE here: http://www.wisecampaign.org.uk/parents_and_teachers/wise_awards.cfm
