18th December 2017

Categories: Latest News

MADE project winners and attendees were awarded at a presentation ceremony at Torquay Grammar School for Girls.


MADE (Manufacturing Activities Designed to Engage) has engaged with over 2,000 pupils across Torbay and South Devon.


24 girls received certificates for attendance at the TechBay ‘17 event, which inspired the girls to engage with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities.


The event also celebrates the engineering and manufacturing opportunities for girls in Torbay.


Mr Walker, Chemistry Teacher at TGGS, said: “This project and the activities it delivers has inspired many of the girls at the school to look at opportunities in engineering. The events help them to see how their learning in the classroom can be applied in the engineering and manufacturing sector.”


Debbie Passmore, Senior Economic Development Officer at TDA, said: “It was great to see the girls share their MADE experiences with the other girls at their school. For them to explain how much fun the activities are and what they learned from them was really powerful. We are proud of the number of girls that are engaging in the project and look forward to seeing this grow.”
