Pupils get hands-on in National Science and Engineering Week
160 students from seven local schools visited Lancaster University last week to get hands-on with Science and Engineering.
Science and Technology departments organised a range of informative workshops and challenges across the week to help stimulate pupils' interest in science and technology as part of the national event.
A team of girls from Carnforth High school triumphed in the Engineering and Physics Bottle Rocket Challenge with a winning flight of 95m. Kirkby Kendal School won an Enercities competition organised by Lancaster Environment Centre in conjunction with Lancaster and Morecambe College where pupils competed to build a sustainable virtual city.
Luigi D'Antonio of Dallam School said "Our students really enjoyed the activities and were inspired by the talks and sessions."
John Bristow of Lancaster Girl's Grammar School said "Many thanks for arranging such a good workshop for us; the girls said they had found it interesting and enjoyable, especially the heart!"
Steve Bell of Lancaster Royal Grammar School said "Thanks for organising such a great morning for the boys; they were buzzing about Physics, Lancaster Uni and chocolate."
Thank you to all Science and Technology staff who were involved in the event.
