On Tuesday 7 May Years 7 and 8 took part in a Marine Engineering Pathway Workshop led by the MSSC (Marine Society & Sea Cadets). They are passionate about inspiring young people to engage with STEM subjects and aim to highlight the career opportunities in Marine Engineering.
To encourage pupils to engage with STEM, the workshop session covered Buoyancy, which links to the KS3 Science and PSHE curricula.
It was a fun, hands-on session aimed at teaching pupils about the principles of engineering through use of Marine based real-life scenarios. Pupils worked in teams to design and create an engineering solution in a hands on challenge.
