GirlEng WC visit Samora Machel High School
The GirlEng Western Cape team visited Samora Machel High School on Saturday 13 April 2013. The team was excited at the opportunity to inform the hall of students about SAWomEng and about the upcoming GirlEng Information Session taking place on the 4th of May.
After an introduction, each GirlEng team member told their story about the reason they decided to study engineering. The head of the GirlEng executive, Sanelisiwe, encouraged the girls to be beauty and brains – the response to which was many nods in agreement.
We explained to the students that attending the Information Session is a great opportunity to learn more about the various disciplines of Engineering so that the necessary work and planning can be done towards pursuing this area of study.
To end off the afternoon, the learners had a chance to mingle with the GirlEng team members in order to ask questions. The learners had many questions and all could not = be answered on the day but will most definitely be covered at the Information Session.
Overall, the learners showed great interest towards learning more about engineering from the GirlEng team who are all enthusiastic about seeing females excel in this area of study. We look forward to seeing these Samora Machel girls and many others in two weeks at the Information Session.
