S1 STEM Day 2016

S1 were recently involved in a STEM day to promote sustainability and the potential uses of renewable energy. Visitors from ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers’ delivered an interactive session which involved pupils competing to build a solar powered car and using their scientific knowledge to judge voltage and distance. All pupils got involved and enjoyed the session…definitely some engineers of the future!
