Inspiring the future of Engineering at Trinity
GCSE and A-level students at Trinity School have recently taken part in a series of engineering workshops with Newbury College in the specialist facilities on site.
Year 9 GCSE design and technology students as well as A-level product design students had the opportunity to find out more about engineering and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) careers.
Students took part in a series of full-day workshops at the college, where they looked at using computer aided design to manufacture engineered products as well as getting hands on with using metal work machinery. The workshops gave students an insight into what is involved in engineering and provided an opportunity to develop key problem solving and design skills in the process.
Mr Liam Anderson, Head of D&T at Trinity said, “Thank you to the college for providing the students with the opportunity to have a go at using professional, industry-standard equipment to get a real feel for what engineering is about. Students have experienced a real excitement around engineering and what diverse careers it could lead on to. It’s really important that we continue to inspire the future of engineering in order to ensure that we are well equipped as a society to tackle problems of the future and Trinity and the college are committed to doing this”.
