60 Year 9 expert learners took part in a STEM day where they were tasked to create energy infrastructure for a residential area. They had to use a mix of solar and a self-constructed turbine attached to a generator to power an LED light in a model house. They had to present and test their prototypes, illustrating their reasons for choosing their energy mix, costings for the project and their choice of area for building the infrastructure to minimise disruption to local habitats.
A really fun day was had by all and hopefully will further ignite the passion for science and engineering with those pupils. With Siemens Gamesa making Hull the epicentre for renewable energy, there has never been a better time for the young people of Hull to dream of a career in engineering and the renewable sector!
