As part of a whole school interdisciplinary day on affordable clean energy, year 7 students at The Leigh UTC benefitted from Tomorrow’s Engineers Energy Quest workshops.

Working in small groups, students actively participated in a series of tasks designed to get them thinking about the many aspects of being an engineer and how the enquiring mind of an engineer can be put to task to solve many of today’s issues such as the need for renewable and sustainable energies.

Funded by the charity Tomorrows Engineers, the workshops were facilitated by Phil Edwards of Weald Technology and supported by STEM Ambassador, Sharon from UK Power Networks.

Students particularly enjoyed making and testing model cars.
