Engineering Afternoon

All 60 pupils in the new S3 (old S2), in 10 teams, were engaged in a STEM-filled afternoon on Tuesday 5 June. They had a variety of tasks to solve as a team, which included designing and building a model tower to support a wind turbine, design a flag and solve some other problems. We are indebted to Kim MacGowan of Morrison Construction who took time to spend with the students. She  gave a short talk on the work of a Civil Engineer, helped them with their tasks and scored their work so that we could award 3rd, 2nd and 1st prizes.
