Four students at a girls school have won a prestigious gold engineering award.
The quartet from St Albans Girls School (STAGS) - Catriona Cadenhead, Amy Mistry, Naomi Peterson and Farzana Rahman - were mentored by county council highways staff as they designed and developed an integrated bus stop and multi-modal bus design.
The students’ work, which included design testing, construction, cost evaluation and research, was undertaken as part of the Engineering Education Scheme.
The project was also entered for a British Science Association CREST award and the students all received a Gold award.
Terry Douris, the county council’s cabinet member for highways, said: “I think we’ve found some engineers of the future as the standard of work has been exceptionally high.
