On Monday the 11th of January, students from Shenfield School in Brentwood experienced a unique engineering taster session in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Centre.
Run by Frank Johnson, an engineering lecturer and Colin Moore, an electrical instructor, the interactive learning experience gave students the opportunity to see what the college has to offer in terms of facilities and opportunities.
Focusing on science and technology, the morning began with a session on modern science and technology, including game design and robotics which the students thoroughly enjoyed. They were then divided into four groups and given engineering set challenges which included innovation exercises alongside tests to identify solutions to existing problems.
It was an exciting morning giving the students not only the experience of being a Havering Student, but also an insight into the engineering industry as a whole.
Havering College intends running similar taster sessions throughout the year and will cover an extensive range of subjects. Schools wishing to participate should contact Schools Liaison 01708 462893
