The STEM day saw year eight pupils tasked with analysing a number of issues regarding energy in the UK.

This included making a robot to work in a nuclear power station, researching a certain aspect of energy and creating a presentation to deliver to other students.

Pop-up workshops, supported by ambassadors from firms including GE Oil and Gas and Mott MacDonald, were also put on covering a range of topics including the physics of radiation, loci in action, uses of radiation, nuclear chemistry, civil engineering and the nuclear industry.
