A councillor has met with aspiring engineers at a Dagenham college.
Cllr Evelyn Carpenter, cabinet member for educational attainment and school improvement, visited the East London University Technical College (Elutec) to take a tour of the facilities and meet pupils and staff.
During her visit, she watched an engineering workshop and a science lesson and spoke to young people about what they were learning at the college.
She was even able to sit in one of the cars used by the college’s Greenpower racing team - a national competition which sees students build and race their own cars.
An Elutec spokeswoman said: “We were delighted that she came to visit and show her support.”
