KBA students visit Tomorrow's Engineers Energy Quest STEM workshop

On Monday 2nd July 2018, over 80 Year 8 students took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Tomorrow's Engineers Energy Quest workshop facilitated by a local STEM expert from Learn by Design.

The aim of the workshop was to raise awareness of STEM subjects and encourage students to explore the wide range of careers linked to these and not just the traditional engineering routes. The focus was on the energy issues that future generations will face and how our young people will be the ones coming up with the solutions. Students explored the concepts of energy generation, sustainability and technology in a fun, interactive way by building and racing mini electric cars.
