In celebration of International Women’s Day 2022, some of the pupils from Pennyman Primary Academy attended Teesside University’s Launchpad incubator for start-up businesses. They were taken on a guided tour of the facility, seeing some of the fantastic and innovative start-up businesses in Middlesbrough. Claire Walton, an inspiring author from Teesside, came to speak to them, helping to uncover hidden superpowers and the power of the superhero pose before they met three female entrepreneurs who gave them the advice they wish they had been given in school about their future prospects. The children then spent the afternoon in the Big River Bakery, working together (including children from other schools) to make cupcakes and cookies.
