During the Easter break, in their free time, 6 of our Year 9 students attended the EDF Low Carbon Residential at Cannington Court.
The course was attended by 48 students from Somerset schools and focused on the current energy challenge and the need for a sustainable energy future. Students were challenged to solve energy related problems through practical design-and-build activities, debates and presentation tasks. This included tasks such as speaking with governers and coming up with environmentally responsible energy solutions to power 3 islands. Furthermore, the boys also helped to design a concept and then build wind powered cars!
Mentored throughout by EDF Energy Graduates, the students also had the opportunity to visit Hinkley Point C as well as mixing with additional EDF Energy Professionals during down-time to get a thorough understanding of what it is like to work in the industry. Of course the residential wasn’t all work as the lads took part in extra activities such as a low ropes course, a games evening, disco and a formal sit down meal.
The competition for apprenticeships and employment within the engineering industry can be high. However these brilliant 4 days away will give these bright students an improved chance of obtaining a career in engineering, as the skills and lessons they learnt showcase their creativity and STEM knowlege as well as their determination and passion for the topic.
Upon hearing about their achievements, the 6 students were invited to talk with Headteacher Mrs Canham and Deputy Head Mr Reid. They congratulated the students as they spoke with such enthusiasm about the trip. Their 'best bits' were the new friends they made, the varierty of activities they took part in and the adult way in which they were treated.
Massive well done to the following students for taking part!
