Engineers Tomorrow

On Friday November 23rd saw all of Year 9 students attend a special hour long show presented by ‘Engineers Tomorrow’. We had lots of Bangs, flashes and smoke as the students learnt how the internal combustion engine works, as well as finding out how solar engines work, marshmallows being fired from a trebuchet across the hall. All finishing on a ground shaking experience as the students found how skyscrapers are built to withstand earthquakes, with a little help from jenga and an egg. All this is to be followed up with a workshop day when the students will be able to get hands on with engineering.
