A woman in STEM
This March our Operations Delivery Manager, Caroline Marriage, will be joining renowned polar explorer, Sir Robert Swan OBE, on his next 2041 Foundation ClimateForce expedition to Antarctica.
"I love the idea that engineering is about using our ingenuity, solving problems and coming up with creative solutions."
In 4 weeks' time, Caroline will be in Antarctica, learning about climate change with the aim to educate and inspire others to help combat it. Please get in touch with Caroline if you would like to support this initiative, or donate here!
In the meantime, to celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science last week, Caroline shares her career journey in her latest blog post, from electrical engineering degree to Origami.
A Woman in STEM
Friday, the 11th of February, was the UN's International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

As a teenager, I enjoyed maths and physics but knew that I didn't want to study either of them at university. I liked the idea of engineering and my dad was a civil engineer so the concept wasn't alien to me although I was aware that there were different types of engineering - mechanical/electrical/structural etc.
