Year 9 students participated in a STEM Energy Quest workshop led by Engineering UK. Students had to solve and find solutions in sometimes complex life situations by using their teamwork skills and the engineering design process.

Our students explored the theory of using citrus fruits to power a mobile phone in potential crisis scenarios. Students then used their knowledge of electrical conductivity and voltage to discover how much electrical energy is hidden in a typical orange!

Students benefited greatly from the opportunity to collaborate to generate an idea and turn it into reality, gaining an understanding of what engineers truly do to influence the world around us.
