Wednesday 15th April, from 11.45am until 2.30pm - As part of our commitment to getting more students aware of further education, STEMatICC has forged close links to the University of Brighton through STEM Sussex, the regional co-ordinators of STEM related activities throughout Sussex. As part of that programme, 15 students were invited to attend a STEM-related day, including 2 lectures and an “Egg Drop Engineering Challenge” supported by STEM Ambassador Undergraduates, designing and making contraptions to protect an egg dropped from varying heights.

Engineers / STEM ambassadors from Thales came in to deliver a 6 week introduction to electronics course.

Students worked in pairs to understand electronics theory and build steadily more complicated circuits, leading to them designing and building the best metal detector and making the most ‘finds’ in the final week.

The winning pair, Abbie Allen and Keane Polykett, pictured here on a hot, sunny day representing ICC in this year’s inter-school final held at Big Bang South East in June 2015.
