It all began when she was passing car parts around the dinner table, and it culminated in a dream role working for McLaren. Ella Podmore is a materials engineer at McLaren automotive, and spends her day breaking things apart in the laboratory – sometimes she even gets to take the cars out for a spin! Ella tells us about her job, shares an important message about female representation in engineering, and explains why it’s important to be tenacious.

Watch Ella’s online interview as part of the ‘If you were an engineer what would you do?’ Leaders Award Competition.

We also hear from young engineer-in-the-making Daniel Kitley, who’s on a mission to save the planet with his Beach Cleaner 3000.

The planet-saving theme continues when we meet the Glasgow Caledonian University team tasked with creating Heather’s Hydro Paddle, and when we meet Arabella and Maria, who both have innovative ideas to tackle pollution and climate change.
