#9 | Saving the Great Iron Ship

Jade, Insyirah and Tom speak with Nicola Grahamslaw, the newly-appointed ship conservation engineer at the SS Great Britain. Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and constructed in Bristol, this majestic iron-hulled ship was the largest passenger vessel in the world at the time of its launch, and sailed the world countless times during a service life of nearly a century.

In this episode, Nicola recounts the ship's vibrant and storied history, and we discuss the day-to-day challenges she tackles in her unique job, as well as the importance of learning new skills and accepting unusual challenges to prepare for the fast-paced world of the future. ---- Engenius is produced by a team of engineering students at the University of Bristol.
