Meet Jessica Jones – I Look Like An Engineer: A Local STEM-sation!

Meet Jessica Jones, she’s MerseySTEM’s star student when it comes to STEM inspiration! So much so we’re highlighting her on the #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign on Twitter!

Jessica is a local girl who studied at Archbishop Blanch. She has just secured a place to do an MEng in Automotive Engineering at Warwick University starting in October and has been invited for a scholarship interview at The Institution of Mechanical Engineers. She is currently developing a virtual engineering club with her school and is looking forward to signing up as a STEM Ambassador and volunteering for MerseySTEM events!

But how did Jess leap from schoolgirl to the pit lane at Silverstone?
Visit her blog to find out, get in touch and discover more… 

“Everything around us has been engineered; from the iPhone in your hand to the chair you are sitting on – somebody, somewhere has designed, developed and manufactured that product. Without innovative engineers, our ever developing world would be stuck, unable to move onto new technologies and inventions.”

“We need more engineering graduates, specifically more women engineering students. I am writing my blog to try and encourage more girls to consider a career in engineering, and to give them tips on how to get there. I am an 18 year-old girl who is about to start a degree in Automotive Engineering at Warwick University and I hope I can share my passion for my subject with other girls.”

Well done Jess, an inspiration to all!
