Rebecca Innes has been named the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Scotland’s STEM Ambassador of the Year after volunteering to inspire the next generation of civil engineers.

On behalf of Transport Scotland, Rebecca has devised a number of innovative workshops for local primary and secondary schools – particularly for pupils who have additional support needs.

Rebecca, who currently works for Jacobs in Inverness, said: “Working as a STEM ambassador is a part of my job. I absolutely love and give it my all so being given this award is amazing – and a great privilege.

“Working with the pupils continues to inspire me to develop new ideas."

ICE Scotland chairman Donald Bell, who was on the judging panel, said: “Rebecca has done a fantastic job in sharing her civil engineering knowledge with young people, showing real passion and imagination. All our STEM ambassadors are a credit to the profession – helping young people to understand the value civil engineers bring to our communities.”

Rebecca is now short-listed for a UK award.
