Girls into Science and Industry
Plasmawr has taken advantage of opportunities offered by STEM Wales recently, allowing groups of girls from years 8 and 9 to visit Aberthaw power station near Barry. These industry visits, and engineering in particular, gave the girls an opportunity to have a guided tour of the site, and the opportunity to design and build a wind turbine to produce energy from renewable sources.
EESW Engineering Scheme
On Monday March 16th, eight Year 12 pupils attended the finals day of the EESW Engineering scheme at Celtic Manor. This was the highlight and finale of a joint project with the BBC to solve a problem related to electronics and sound. This was the culmination of 5 months of hard and challenging work in a whole new area for all members, but also an opportunity to contribute to the project which led to the Crest Gold Award for work on an industrial project.
