Engineering Education Scheme in Wales” is a STEM-based project to encourage
students to consider a career in the science industries.
This year we
are working with Catapult Energy, https://ore.catapult.org.uk/ the UK’s leading Technology Innovation
and Research Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy.
The project is
focused on exploring new technologies to monitor the environment impact of
offshore wind projects. Staff and students have lots of ideas how to tackle
Around 600 students
take part in the EESW Project each year from all over Wales. During the project students will research
and design a solution and produce a final proposal, model or working prototype.
Following a two-
or three-day workshop in December at a local university or college, a written
report will be submitted in February/March.
The teams will
then attend an Awards and Presentation Day in North or South Wales in March or
April, where they will display their work at an exhibition stand and give a
presentation to a panel of assessors. Awards of up to £500 will be presented.
We will keep
you posted with our progress! Good luck guys!
