AWE STEM Event October 2017

Students from QMC spent the morning working with scientists and engineers from AWE on a range of enjoyable problem solving activities. These were designed to develop the kinds of skills valued in STEM environments, as well as giving the students a greater insight into the diversity of career opportunities available to them with science and maths A' levels. The activities ranged from building and fine-tuning the performance of electrochemical cells through to designing and testing a nose cone for a water-powered rocket that would enable an egg to survive the fall back to earth. There were 5 activities for the Spotlight on STEM project morning: 1. Ball run - engineering 2. Nuclear Reactor simulator - physics 3. Battery design – chemistry 4. Bottle rocket – engineering 5. Nuclear forensics – chemistry/physics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjA5KSDdMwg
