AN AWE event to encourage girls to get involved in engineering attracted students from across Hampshire and Berkshire.

The girls were tasked with three challenges designed to test their engineering know-how - a marble run, a tower build and an egg catch.

Philip Cain, head of technology at Robert May's School in Odiham, said: "This was our first time attending the event, and I think it was fantastic.

"It was particularly refreshing to see an event that motivated girls in STEM. I wish there were more events like this."
