Step into Ella's world of material engineering and challenge yourself to design a totally new method of space travel!
Ella joined McLaren Automotive as an intern engineer in 2016, before securing a full-time role two years later. As one of more than 100 McLaren STEM ambassadors, Ella is passionate about encouraging more young people of all ages to engage with science.
As well as talking to young people around the world about engineering, Ella was also one of McLaren’s expert judges on the BBC Blue Peter ‘Supercar of the Future’ children’s design competition, and was also awarded an MBE earlier this year!
Develop your space craft thinking about the design, energy source, user testing, infrastructure and usability. Put your ideas onto paper with sketches, notes or mood boards and then try your hand at developing a 3D prototype. Watch Lottie Smith's video below to help give you an idea of some simple ways you could make your 3D prototype with everyday materials.
