Lottie on Tour

IPEM is participating in the Lottie Tour, which is organised by the Women's Engineering Society (celebrating their 100th anniversary this year!).

Lottie is a doll that travels around the country to visit women who take pictures of her at work and therefore promoting the amazing and varied careers available in engineering.  

These photos can be used on social media and websites etc to showcase your work but they should also be shared during Tomorrow's Engineers week in November.  Lottie could have a scan, repair a medical device, test a wheelchair, be a patient etc...

To read more about Lottie on Tour, including some ideas for blogs see the WES Lottie on Tour page. Apart from doing a great job promoting new areas of work for children it is also great fun to participate! 


  • You do not need to write a blog, just take a minimum of 5 pictures, one of which needs to include you.
  • These photos should be tweeted or used on social media during Tomorrow's engineers week in November (don't worry, we'll remind you this).  You can of course also use the photos straight away!  And if you don't use social media we can post them for you!
  • Please email the photos to us as well (communications@ipem.ac.uk) .  The best ones will be featured here on this page.
  • You can have Lottie for approx one week to ensure as many people as possible can take part.  (we only have Lottie for a few months)
  • We will send you Lottie and also include a Freepost envelope to return it to us.
  • The WES theme this year is Then and Now, so if you can take any photos of Lottie with some OLD equipment for example that would be great (but not essential)

That's it!  Below are a few examples of how Lottie has been used in the past to showcase different areas of work.
