Careers Assemblies – 30 minute session

This is a great opportunity for students and teachers to find out more about the planned nuclear power station we are proposing at Hinkley Point and associated careers opportunities. We will also tell you all about the other events and resources available through our Year 8 Involve and Year 9 Pathways Programmes. Assemblies will be delivered by EDF Energy volunteers including engineering apprentices and graduates.
STEM Day workshops – 1 day
Year 8 Dec-Feb Year 9 Feb-Mar
STEM subjects obviously play a big part in the work we do and these practical hands-on sessions really bring that work to life.
Year 8 students work in teams completing their own ‘design and make’ project. The teams will design, test and modify their Egg protection vehicles before presenting their final solutions. For this Year 8 workshop we can work with up to 100 students per day. We bring all the equipment and resources.
Year 9 students will have an opportunity to consider how electricity is generated and discuss the relative merits of each method. The groups will make their own wind turbine and generators. We can work with up to 45 students per 2 hour session and could run two sessions per day. We bring all the equipment and resources. ( with smaller groups this could be run in a large classroom )
For all sessions, we need the use of a school hall and the support of at least two teachers. For assemblies, a laptop and projector are requested.
