The Library of Inspiration
  The project's ultimate aim is to empower 12 and 13-year-olds from under-represented groups in engineering to become future leaders. This will be achieved through "The Library of Inspiration," physically located in local high schools, using co-creation and writers’ kits. These kits, designed specifically for girls, young carers, and pupils from diverse backgrounds, incorporate fashion, film, books, adventure, sustainability, and other topics to ignite excitement and motivation. Each kit explores cutting-edge technologies, such as VR/AR, sound, robotics, information systems, and AI, indirectly encouraging engagement with engineering. However, the primary focus is on storytelling, using peer groups and role models to foster confidence, communication, and leadership skills.
