Matthew Arnold School – 25th May 2012

Friday saw 45 Year 7 students, supported by some Year 8 and Year 10 students at Matthew Arnold School in Staines , taking part in an exciting challenge to test their engineering skills.   Seven teams worked furiously despite the heat to create individual sports stadiums with a huge range of designs.  The SATRO team of experts were on hand to give guidance and construction tips.  And the teaching staff were no less enthusiastic  - there was a real buzz in the hall!

And they learnt about :       Forces in Structures / Engineering & Construction / Design principles - not bad for a day at school!

The students found it particularly great working in different teams and some even said it had made them think about an engineering or construction-related career.

Many thanks to Geoff Evans, Deputy Head, and his staff for making us feel so welcome and ensuring that all the necessary preparations were in place to achieve a really successful event.
