Engineering Real-Life HeroesSHELL
As part of Shell’s #makethethefuture campaign, Shell wanted to launch an online film, to help change perceptions about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), and break down the barriers that stop young people, and in particular, young women pursuing careers in the sector.
Our response was Engineering Real-Life Heroes, where we brought actress Letitia Wright together with four female engineers of the Shell Eco-Marathon Europe, as they share their incredible personal journeys and aspirations to become future STEM leaders. One key factor for the low intake of women in STEM fields is the lack of female role models for young people to look up to.
Letitia Wright is renowned for her role as a young female scientist in Marvel’s Black Panther and has inspired a world-wide movement of youngsters gaining interest in STEM. In Engineering Real Life Heroes Letitia has the opportunity to inspire and be inspired herself as she connects with some very talented young inventors.
