Enyala Banks from Cardiff 6th Form College took part in the EESW project in 2019. "Being able to partake in EESW really made me realise that Engineering was the field that I wanted to go into, as it mimicked the experience of a professional engineer! The problem we were given was to find a way to measure current in the electrified rail lines for Network Rail, and our group decided we wanted to use a hall probe. This allowed me to discover my passion for material science when looking into the most sustainable material for the probe, and has inspired me to pursue this interest studying Materials Science at university!"
