Y9&10 Are you a budding Formula One Team…

As part of our ongoing careers programme and the start of our parents “Back to School” sessions, we are working with the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) a national educational charity, to run a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Family Challenge event on Wednesday 16 October from 6.00pm to 7.30pm.

Here, you will have the opportunity to design and build a racing car (although, perhaps scaled down!) This event is open to all families of students in Years 9 and 10. Please arrive from 5.45pm onwards for refreshments and to be ready to start promptly at 6.00pm.

Students and family members are invited to take part in this fun and unique event which has been designed to raise awareness and show everyone some of the courses and careers available in STEM. As well as providing families with the opportunity to work in teams on an exciting ‘hands on’ activity, there will also be prizes available.

The family teams need to include at least one student and one adult (parent/guardian/family friend/teacher) – please feel free to bring along as many other family members as you wish (all ages welcome). No prior knowledge of STEM is required!

EDT is an independent registered charity delivering over 40,000 STEM experiences each year, for young people age 9 – 21, across the UK and their webpage is: www.etrust.org.uk.

Quotes from previous events:

‘I found it inspiring and it was also fun’
‘My daughter could have a career in engineering’
‘From taking part today we have learnt that STEM is involved in many aspects of our lives and that there are many career options involving STEM.’

It would be great to see you at this event and we hope to see you there.
