Future Engineers Competition

We have been given a great opportunity to participate in a scheme being run by the Engineering Department at Lancaster University. This will take the form of a challenge set by the department which is to be solved by small teams who will work with my support to produce a Powerpoint presentation and poster on their solution. This will then be presented at the university during a conference later in the year.

This link will take you to a poster Tidal Energy from the university describing the event. They willl be visiting school to present the challenge later this month.

If you are considering studying any form of engineering degree this even will look fantastic on UCAS applications..!

This event is open to both Y12 and Y13 Students.

Cheers: Mr Salton
