STEM Buoyancy Workshop WCS Wells Cathedral Independent School Somerset England

STEM Buoyancy Workshop

The Years 7 to 9 Academic Scholars and Year 9 Navy Cadets took part in a STEM Buoyancy Workshop recently. Richard Quin from the Marine Society and Sea Cadets led the pupils through some fun, interactive challenges, introducing them to marine engineering. The pupils were thoroughly engaged and really enjoyed the experience.

The engineering challenge was a particular highlight of the session; the pupils were given materials to engineer a miniature cargo ship. Their ships were tested to see how many marbles they could hold before capsizing. Congratulations to Theo Riley and George Murray (Year 8) who won the competition with 140 marbles!

All in all, a great session to inspire our future engineers.
