Year 8 students take part in Engineering Day
Year 8 girls and boys enjoyed an exciting and interesting day focussing on engineering as a possible career option.
Often this is a path that is not well understood and, despite former Westholme pupils pursuing this route in recent years, it was well worth boosting the pupils’ awareness of this area.
They attended a presentation for the whole year group and then split into groups to attend interactive workshops.
These involved working with robots and designing new sound products including some roller skates with speakers!
The students came away from the day with a greater understanding of the diversity of careers in engineering alongside an appreciation of the variety of ways in which it is possible to embark on this career path.
