Preparing for the future
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) places an emphasis on preparing pupils for their future careers. The skills gained from STEM extend beyond those needed to be successful in related fields, preparing pupils to move into industry by gaining a valuable skill set that allows them to be successful in a range of future careers
IET Faraday Challenge Day
Year Eight pupils from RGS Worcester, Nunnery Wood School, Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, The Chantry School and RGS Dodderhill participated in the 2023-24 Institution of Engineering and Technology’s IET Faraday Challenge Day (FCD). The IET Faraday Challenge is an annual competition that introduces pupils to engineering, inspiring them to consider engineering as a career and helps to develop their practical and employability skills, including team working, problem solving and creative thinking. This year’s challenge is in association with Rees Jeffreys Road Fund and National Highways. Teams must race against the clock to solve a real-life engineering problem, putting their engineering and technology knowledge and skills to the test. Read the full article.
