Over 180 girls from many schools across Cornwall then spent the day enjoying various activities including welding with chocolate, design/build/test of remote control cargo ships, speed wheels changes on rally cars, virtual reality tours of building structures, driving a remotely operated vehicle and much more. More than 17 companies came to the school to inspire the girls representing many facets of the engineering industry. The girls were placed in groups from various schools which encouraged them to work in a team with people they had never met, and they all excelled at this to produce some amazing structures and vessels.
