Engineering talent on show

FUTURE engineering talent from Corby will be on show when a school takes part in the largest event of its kind in the UK.

Students from Brooke Weston Academy have been working for the last six months with local companies on engineering projects, and will join 300 students from 66 schools at the Engineering Education Scheme’s celebration day in Birmingham on Thursday.

The team from Brooke Weston Academy has been working with engineers Shane Collins and Andrew Avallone from MGWSP on a project to investigate safety solutions for pupils who walk to school.

The team are supported by their teacher Nigel Barrett and comprises Maria Garvey, Mitchell Bellamy, Liam Schulz-O’Connell and Niamh Bailey.

Geoff Jellis, Midlands director for EDT, said: “The students continue to surprise us, not only with their creativity, but with their hard work and professionalism.”
