Institute of Engineering and Technology Challenge Day
Year 9 Students Enjoy a Day of STEM Activities
WSFG welcomed students from Highams Park School and Holy Family Catholic School to participate in a busy and challenging STEM day. The students had to come up with innovative solutions and prototypes for transporting aid to disaster zones. I was very proud of all the students for their enthusiasm and work ethic throughout the day.
This is what the students had to say about the experience.
This problem solving day was informative and fun! I got to learn all about Engineering and valuable skills I can use later in life. We used resilience and creativity plus we got to work with new people and make new friends. I would love to do something like this again.
Throughout the course of the day I learnt valuable skills including resilience, teamwork and communication. I discovered that there are many different types of careers within engineering. It was a fun and informative day.
This was a great opportunity to work on problem solving skills and teamwork. The staff were very supportive and made sure we all contributed and felt included. I am glad we have these workshops.
The activity today was a great experience for us to build on our teamwork skills and learn about the role of an engineer. I discovered that being an engineer is so much more than making things as there are lots of branches of engineering.
This was a fun and exciting opportunity and I learnt a lot about engineering. I learnt the importance of STEM and how engineering can be applied to everything. I really enjoyed this amazing day and I hope to do something like this again.
