STEM opportunities for WVC students

Twenty Year 9 Engineering students attended an event at Stainless Metalcraft in conjunction with Cambridge University to experience an engineering environment.

Working in teams, our students really enjoyed building bridges out of scrap paper in such a manner as to understand how materials work under stress. They competed against each other and an apprentice’s team (from Stainless Metalcraft).

Our girls’ team were victorious, building the bridge that took the most weight. The second part of the day was a tour of the apprenticeship workshop and training area, followed by a tour of their newest manufacturing facility. All students thoroughly enjoyed the day and this will further enhance their learning for GCSE Engineering.

A second trip took Fifteen Year 10 students to Cambridge University Centre of Mathematical Sciences to take part in a Take Maths Further day. The students experienced several seminars and took part enthusiastically. There was a hands-on activity and a competition with students from other schools, which developed team-building skills and enhanced their knowledge of maths. All had a great day.
