Real life 6 months STEM projects for year 12 and S5 (16 & 17 year old) students
We allow students to gain a taste and understanding of engineering careers by working on real life research projects. In 2015, in collaboration with the University of Manchester and the Diamond-Manchester Collaboration (Pr PD Lee), we enrolled in a 6-month programme with 5 students from Wycombe Abbey school to design a special rig for geological studies for which we were awarded an Engineering Education Scheme National Award.
The Engineering Education Scheme in England & Scotland is an EDT Programme which links teams of four Year 12 or S5/S6 students and their teacher with local companies to work on real, scientific, engineering and technological problems.
