RBAI & Victoria College STEM Careers Event

On Thursday 31st May and Friday 1st June, Year 9 pupils from RBAI and Victoria College came together to take part in a STEM Careers Awareness event.

The event was a Rapid Response Engineering Challenge which allowed Year 9 pupils to put themselves into the shoes of Civil Engineers who were responding to a natural disaster in Haiti.

Pupils were placed in mixed teams and worked with Civil Engineering professionals to complete a series of desktop and outdoor activities that introduced real-world problems to the classroom.

Many thanks must go to former RBAI pupil Richard Kirk from the Institution of Civil Engineers and all the other Engineering Professionals, who helped make both days extremely worthwhile for all the pupils involved.
