BAE Systems Education Roadshow

Today, Tuesday 2nd October, we were privileged to have the BAE Systems Roadshow visit, much to the delight of our students.

The Roadshow was devised in response to the Government's acknowledgement that there is already a shortfall of ‘home grown’ scientists and engineers to meet the needs of the country and by capturing the interest of young people aged 10 – 13. They hopefully want to increase the numbers that take STEM subjects and ultimately increase the pool of talent in years to come.

The show was entitled “It’s a Numbers Game.” Throughout the show students were introduced to a series of fun and fascinating ways in which Maths is used in everyday life, including examples of the practical application of mathematical techniques within BAE Systems, the RAF and the Royal Navy. Also included was the most up to date technologies to demonstrate the importance of Maths in the future of Engineering. Students were invited to participate in some of the demonstrations and problem-solving games.
