Nuclear Workshop - Hotel Football
Miss Boardman took 10 Key Stage 3 students to the Innovation in Nuclear STEM workshop at Hotel Football in Manchester. The European Nuclear Young Generation Forum held a conference in Manchester and wanted to demonstrate the opportunities available to young people and engage them in challenging science and engineering activities.
Students undertook challenges linked to earthquakes, disposal of nuclear waste, safe transportation and removal of nuclear materials, making their own devices to investigate the challenges the engineers may face. Both our groups won one of the five challenges and Alice was commended by ambassadors who were running the event which won her a prize for her leadership skills. Well done to all students who went on the trip they were a credit to the school.
