AWE Engineering Challenge
On Monday 21st October, four year 9 students were involved in the AWE engineering challenge at AWE Aldermaston. The students were tasked with engineering their own turbine for use in a hydroelectric dam. The students enjoyed designing and building their turbine and ultimately putting it to the test, competing against other schools. The TCS team did not win the competition, however the students were rewarded with a £10 amazon voucher each for their efforts. Overall, the students had a fantastic day applying their science knowledge to a real world engineering problem.
