STEM Day – Tomorrow’s Engineers

Building cars on STEM Day - Tomorrow’s Engineers

On Thursday, 4th June, 60 year 8s spent 3 hours participating in a workshop with Tomorrow’s Engineers. The pupils started by looking at how our population is growing and the types of energy we will need to use in the future, participating in a market-place exercise to find out about different forms of energy. The workshop culminated in students making solar powered cars which required a lot of problem solving to ensure their motor was actually connected to their wheels! By the end of the workshop every group had a car that worked at least some of the time and their cars were raced against each other.
