Year 10 Girls meet the Minister for Defence at Sandhurst

Friday 22nd June 2018

Our Year 10 girls were flying the flag for women in STEM jobs at a careers fair on 24th May 2018 at the UK’s elite military academy at Sandhurst.

They had the opportunity to gain first hand experience of the exciting and challenging job opportunities that the forces have to offer. The Rockwood students enjoyed the day and returned being inspired by what can be achieved through hard work and determination. Here are some impressions of the day:

Using virtual reality technology to navigate was one of the highlights

Even though they did not quite fly in a helicopter, they enjoy a demonstration.

A steady hand is needed for many of the STEM jobs and exactly that was tested in this display.

Our students shone during an interview with the forces radio by being eloquent and extremely knowledgeable.
