Students from The Coleshill School were invited to BMW Group’s engine manufacturing plant, Hams Hall, as part of a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) project funded by Warwickshire County Council. The project was launched in May 2017 and came to a conclusion on Thursday 19th October 2017.
The event at BMW, Hams Hall, allowed the students to showcase all that they had learnt from BMW engineers and apprentices, who supported the students throughout the project, during a five minute presentation and question and answer session. Students presented their research on hydrogen fuel cell technology; car designs; and the results of their speed and efficiency testing. All of which were judged by staff from BMW, The Coleshill School and Glenn Robinson, Skills for Employment Programme Manager, Warwickshire County Council.
Mr Smith-Childs, Headteacher commented “ It was inspirational to see these boys rise to the challenge and present to both their peers and professionals. I hope that the experience will now spur them on to fulfilling their amazing potential.”
