Inspiring the next generation
We have recently worked with our local infant school to encourage creativity, team work and a knowledge of the design and construction process. The children heard about what it means to be an architect, different building types, using materials and the way architects use drawings and models to communicate their ideas and designs.
The children then came up with their own amazing designs! See below...
As a result of recent research which indicates that girls and boys as young as 7 years of age are making choices about what they believe are gender appropriate careers Nicola has been working with the Inspiring Girls organisation in Hemel Hempstead.
Their aim is to demonstrate to girls of secondary school age that gender should not be a factor when choosing a career, that they are capable of greatness and that their gender shouldn't hold them back from anything.
