Year 10s get an Engineering experience

Posted on

Three local Year 10 pupils visited UWE Engineering in July, for a week of Engineering experiences.

Starting off with a tour of campus and of the different labs in Engineering, the three keen young engineers then spent preceding days working with various technicians, getting hands on to:

  • learn the basics of electronic and mechatronic engineering
  • designing and making a keyring using UWE machinery
  • think about redesigning their city in a digital world (Minecraft)
  • test out a new Lidar scanner for Architecture and the Built Environment
  • getting their first experiences in coding programming the humanoid robot ‘Pepper’
  • code music on ‘Manhattan’ – the crowd-based composing software

Thank you for putting together such an amazing week; I had a fantastic time and learnt so much about the different aspects of Engineering. I  hope this Work Experience runs next year as I am certain many students in the year below me would absolutely love it as well.

Thanks to all the UWE Engineering technicians who made the week such a great and varied experience for all the Year 10s!

Pepper hopes to welcome those Year 10 pupils back as UWE students in the future!
