Power for everyone

The STEM club took part in another workshop run by the ‘Engineers without Borders’ called ‘Power for Everyone Everywhere’. This workshop encouraged pupils to explore the challenges associated with access to clean and reliable electricity for people around the world. We learnt about the importance of electricity in our everyday lives and the role that engineering infrastructure plays in the distribution of electricity. Students were encouraged to deepen their understanding of electricity generation through learning about different energy resources and design, build and test their own wind turbine as part of this workshop. This workshop was designed to be built on the recent Sustainable Development Goals and the concept of global citizenship.

All students were engaged and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, a particular well done to Amina Dirir (9AHU) and Nastehe Egal (7FMA) for designing and producing the most successful turbine!
