Easter Science Talk: The Shard

 rosaOn a sunny Spring afternoon in the week before Easter, 220 friends and family of APS were treated to a wonderfully inspiring talk covering engineering, teamwork and the passion it takes to complete big projects.  Roma worked on the shard from 2006 to 2012 and by the range and abundance of questions from the audience, it seems the building certainly has a place in hearts and minds as large as it occupies on the London skyline.

Roma's talk offered fantastic careers guidance and stimulation for the engineering profession.  I look forward to reading her book, 'Built - the Hidden Stories Behind our Structures', when it is released next year.

She made it really funny, but at the same time she taught us the important factors of The Shard. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait until the next talk.Oscar Hills, Y8

Thanks again for organizing such great lectures for the kids - I brought both my kids (my daughter goes to Archer in East Finchley) and both were so impressed.  I especially appreciated that you had a woman speaker on engineering first because I like to inspire my daughter with femaile role models (especially in STEM) and second because I'm a strong supporter of getting more girls into STEM topics.Dan Appelquist
