On the 25th of April, Aysha Fakier, co-director of GirlEng, visited Groenvlei High. She was excited to meet the girls and teach them about the wonderful world of engineering.

After introducing herself, Aysha gave the learners background of SAWomEng and its three divisions. She then broadly explained what engineering is all about. 

 Some of the students were sure that they want to pursue engineering while others were uncertain of their future career paths. Regardless of this, all of the students were invited to attend the upcoming GirlEng Information Session. The Information Session is an opportunity for students to learn about the different engineering disciplines, university entrance requirements and much more.  It is also a chance to ask current engineering students and graduates any questions.  

As the visit came to an end, Aysha interacted with the Groenvlei High learners and answered most of their questions. Any questions that were left unanswered, because of time limitations, will most definitely be covered at the Information Session. It was great to see that the learners showed interest in attending the upcoming Information Session and we look forward to seeing them there.
