Tomorrows Engineers worked with our STEM club cohort to think about energy and energy uses.
They then built and tested electric buggys using a rechargeable capacitor.
The buggys were then set a challenge to use data they had collected to determine the voltage needed to travel a set given distance.
Year 7 and 8 really enjoyed the activity, and learnt a lot about what engineering is, and the range of careers that require different types of engineers.
Friday saw our first STEM ambassador visit. Natalie Brock is a structural engineer and came to talk to our structures group about why a career in engineering might suit them, and how structural engineering and problem solving go hand in hand.
Thank you for your visit, Natalie!
Well done Aniya from 8-2, your logo is in pride of place.
