Claire guides thousands more girls into engineering

Claire helped to create the new Engineering Badge for the Girl Guides. It’s one of her proudest moments since she joined our graduate scheme three years ago.

Amey had just begun its partnership with Girlguiding UK, when Claire’s manager asked her to help develop a badge based on STEM skills. For Amey, it was an opportunity to encourage more girls to take up STEM subjects. For Claire, it was a chance to run a really rewarding project.

Tasked with developing the activities for the badge, Claire consulted Amey’s engineers and ran a trial with some Rainbows, Brownies, and Guides. The new badge has been overwhelmingly popular, with over 130,000 girls taking part.

“I’m happy that I may have helped girls gain confidence and discover a love of engineering. I hope it’ll encourage lots of them to become engineers. Of all the things I’ve done, it’s been the most personally satisfying. I’ve even become a Girl Guide leader myself.”
