KMF Young Engineers Programme

We are really pleased to say that some of our Design and Technology students are taking part in the KMF Young Engineers project in which they will take part in a bespoke Staffordshire KMF Lego League.

Fourteen students will be split into two teams and will compete against another 24 schools across the region, using their knowledge of maths, science, engineering and computer science. They will design and programme their robots to compete against each other gaining points for the tasks they complete and for their teamwork.

Miss Salt, Design and Technology teacher, said: “After the success of the ‘Sent into Space’ project we are excited to take part in a project that gives the students the opportunity to work together, not only as a team, but with the sponsors themselves, which are heavily involved in the after school clubs and promotion of the project. This year we will be sponsored by Air Products in Crewe and we are really excited by the opportunities of networking and support that the company can offer”.

The programme was launched by Lucy Hancock from Newcastle-under-Lyme College, Lynn Willacy from Air Products and Jenny Conlon from KMF Group Ltd.
