So what is engineering anyway?

Every year 9 class, and many classes in other years, have had the opportunity to examine this question over the last four weeks, thanks to Dyson who have loaned us materials for the boys to find out more about the Engineering industry.  In lessons, the boys have been able to disassemble a vacuum cleaner attachment and investigate the many design decisions that were made to create it.  A large number of boys also came to Science Society at lunchtime to disassemble the entire vacuum cleaner and see more of Dyson’s famous turbine design.

We are very grateful to Dyson for the equipment and materials which have given so many boys the chance to understand more about the profession and consider whether they may consider it as a possible career in the future.
