Temilolu Danso: Plymouth University
With a love of maths and physics at school, Temilolu never had a doubt about her career path. She has always had a keen interest in problem solving, and finding out how and why things work. She is studying Mechanical Engineering at Plymouth University, and was drawn to the subject because it combines her interests in physics, maths and design. She finds it absurd that there are fewer female engineers in the UK than anywhere else in Europe because: “Women bring a different perspective to the table.” She says girls need to be encouraged to choose engineering, maths and physics as a future career. She adds: “I believe they need mentors to help them on their journey. We need to show them how fun engineering can be.”
"it is easy to draw on paper, engineering is my art made useful and put into practice."
