Illuminating Engineering

On 4th February, the University of Warwick visited to deliver a session to selected Year 8 classes and Year 9 Engineering students. 


Modern day manufacturing links together art, science, engineering and technology in order to create new, exciting and bespoke products. The interactive workshop explored how these links can be brought together through design, software and hardware engineering skills.  Students enjoyed exploring the creation of a lamp controlled by an Arduino micro processor, and how software can be developed to create light effects.


Many thanks to the WMG department at Warwick University.
