Students take part in EnergyQuest

Around 30 students from Year 7 and Year 8 participated in EnergyQuest. This is a nationwide STEM event promoted by Royal Dutch Shell and Young Engineers. The aim of the event is to promote STEM subjects and careers. The event started with a debate on the ever-increasing worldwide demand for power/energy, and how we can tackle this growing problem.

The event then had a design challenge. Students had a practical challenge to make energy efficient buggies using capacitors as the source of energy. A stimulating and fun session was had by all.

Our thanks to Young Engineers for organising the event.
