HOWARD OF EFFINGHAM MEGA STRUCTURES
On 16th & 17th July, SATRO delivered two Mega-Structures Challenge workshops to Students at The Howard of Effingham School. Over 180 students participated over the two days, supported by a number of SATRO's faithful volunteers, all of whom have expert knowledge and experience of the engineering industry. The students were required to design and build a Sports Stadium, made entirely with rolled up paper, held together with nuts and bolts. The students had to work their costings and use innovative ideas to deliver a 'pitch' to convince judges that their designs were the best. The students seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and now have greater understandings of engineering.
