As part of the North West Schools STEM programme The Mosslands School, together with 33 other schools from across the North West, had the opportunity to engage with the “Tomorrow’s Engineers” team.
As part of the North West Schools STEM programme The Mosslands School, together with 33 other schools from across the North West, had the opportunity to engage with the “Tomorrow’s Engineers” team. Year 8 and 9 students were involved in an exciting interactive experience to provide them with a sound knowledge and understanding of the amazing opportunities the world of engineering has to offer. As part of the presentation, they were taken on a journey around the world to find what engineers do and how it affects our daily lives. They discovered how engineers help supply us with clean water, keep us safe and make sure the lights don’t go out. They saw the challenges engineers face in building structures that can survive earthquakes and how they are combating climate change.
Tomorrow’s Engineers is an initiative led by Engineering UK and the Royal Academy of Engineers. It aims to highlight the exciting opportunities available with a career in engineering. During the team’s second visit to Mosslands, 90 Year 9 students had the opportunity to experience workshops that included “I Engineer”, in which they completed a VEX robot challenge, and the “Engineering X Factor” in which myths surrounding engineering were investigated using a variety of problem solving techniques. Finally “The Drawing Board” workshop, that involved students creating an innovative product to help the engineering industry, brought the experience to a close.
“I thought the whole thing to be really fun, I’d never seen any of the experiments and demonstrations before..”
