The STEM (Science,Technology ,Engineering & Maths) Workshop idea is to get more students involved in these types of careers and show them that the opportunities when they leave are vast.

We chose 30 Year 8 going into Year 9 students (boys and girls) to take part.The aim of the day was to build mini racing cars out of lego and then power them using a hydrogen fuel cell. The students (in small groups) had to design their own car and cog mechanism before attaching a hydrogen syringe that, with the help of an elastic band would deliver the fuel slowly into the fuel cell to power a mini motor. The winner was the one that went the furthest.

The winner was Team ECO (car name was Black Bullet) that went an incredible 22.5m!
