EDF Energy visit
Students had a blast this week when EDF visited our school to talk about nuclear power and career opportunities.
The day began with Year 8s learning about the careers available at EDF and then culminated in students creating their own vehicles, to be fired off a ramp while encasing a hard boiled egg.
The two winning teams then went head to head to relaunch their vehicles - but this time, with an uncooked egg inside.
Launching theirs the furthest, without breaking the egg, was the girls' team.
The activity aimed to demonstrate the process behind carrying delicate materials safely.
It allowed our students to creatively experiment with design, taking into account the science needed to land the egg without breaking it.
