"Such an interesting and fun day, we all enjoyed it so much. It was great to link engineering to nature - many young people I work with think many careers have nothing to do with climate change or the natural world, you put it beautifully if not a bit muddily into context!" - Group Leader, Ambition, Aspire, Achieve
