BARROW based BAE Systems Submarine engineers Beth Howarth-Henry, Lauren Eastburn and BAE Systems Air colleague Sophie Morris have been shortlisted in the Women in Defence UK Awards 2020.

The trio have worked to encourage more interest in STEM topics as part of the G-Eng (Guides in Engineering) team.

In 2019 they travelled to Singapore to launch their project internationally after success in the UK through their work with Girlguiding North West England.

The group are listed in the STEM in Defence award category and will hear in March 2021 if they've been successful.
