On Tuesday 14th January 2020 our Civil Engineering Technicians took part in Tarbolton Primary School’s weekly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Event, sharing information on what Civil Engineering is and what the Ayrshire Roads Alliance does.
Kirsty Smith from the Design section and Aidan Porter from the Traffic and Transportation section spoke to P2 to P4 pupils on why they chose a career in Civil Engineering. They then discussed the different jobs that the Ayrshire Roads Alliance carry out for our communities within East and South Ayrshire. The pupils then got the opportunity to ask Kirsty and Aidan questions and try out some of the equipment they use.
The pupils at Tarbolton Primary were very enthusiastic and the teachers and staff were great at encouraging the pupils to get involved. We look forward to visiting Tarbolton Primary again in the future to help inspire the next generation of engineers.
