Meet Enass. Power Pioneer
“Many parts of the world see electricity as a luxury product and 1.2 billion people don’t have access to reliable power. If we could keep hospitals open 24/7 we could save lives. We’re working on an energy storage system, a hydrogen battery that will offer reliable, clean power.”
Meet Olivia. Fragrance Finder for Lush.
“An engineer is anyone who solves a problem. It’s a way of thinking. It’s about having the curiosity to take something apart and improve it and put it back together. My job is to source materials for Lush in a sustainable and ethically friendly way.”
Meet Chris. Body Rebuilder
“Growing up I was very interested in gadgets and technology. I was always fascinated by how things worked and how they were put together. Now I work in medical robotics, the crossover between robotics and the human body.”
Meet Ala. Civil and Tunnelling Engineer
“The first time I went through Westminster Tube Station I couldn’t get over how complex it was. I knew I wanted to learn more. Now I’m a civil engineer. Things can always be improved and fixed, and by doing that you can improve people’s lives.”
Meet Alan. Senior Orthotic Technician
“An apprenticeship was good for me because I knew I didn’t want to be in a classroom. I’m dyslexic but working with my hands lets me get my creative flow going. I make braces and surgical splints for people who have conditions like cerebral palsy or who have had strokes.”
