Enginuity Day, an annual event hosted by the Faculty of Engineering celebrates, motivates, and inspires our future women engineers. Girls from high school were invited to hear about, learn, and try engineering activities. Our robotics team led by Henry Williams, Jamie Bell, and Fung Yang, together with our energetic student volunteers: Lucy Wu, Vandna Patel, Muskaan Somjee, and Meilyka Amir challenged the girls to programme a Pioneer Robot to navigate through a maze. For many, this was the first time they did any coding or worked with a real robot!
Our Faculty has set an ambitious goal to increase our number of women studying engineering to 33% in Part I and CARES would love to see more women roboticists!
