Engineering in a Pandemic

The Royal Academy of Engineering have created a series of engaging activities for young people interested in STEM, with the theme ‘Engineering in a Pandemic’.

The engineering community plays a vital role in our daily lives, and engineers have been essential in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic has had devastating global effects, the engineering community worked together to quickly respond to the sudden demands of coronavirus, even finding opportunities for positive change.

Pupils have been completing challenges, each with a focus on engineering in a pandemic. This has included designing and creating prototypes for innovative products, engaging in simulation activities and learning about the science behind testing through experiments.

Mr Teague has been really impressed with the fantastic efforts from pupils, from “Stand Back” shoe tags and automatic masks to potato spike proteins!

Well done to all!
