Network Rail invites children to imagine the world without women

Published on July 2, 2020

UM Birmingham is supporting Network Rail in its International Women in Engineering Day celebrations this year to help inspire young females to consider a career in engineering.

World Without Women is a competition for children aged 5 to 14 that invites them to research a female engineer who has had a huge impact on the world and think about what the world would be like if that engineering solution didn’t exist. Winners in a number of different age categories will win a range of prizes, from becoming a cartoon character in Network Rail’s Emily the Engineer Activity Book through to winning an experience day.

The UM Birmingham team has commissioned a range of influencers and their families to participate in the competition and share their experience with their communities to raise awareness of the contest and the aims behind it.

The deadline for competition is 5th July.
