EES Celebration and Assessment Day

The Whitehaven Academy Engineering Education Scheme team are at Sheffield Hallam University today to celebrate the end of this years EES projects.

The team have been working for 6 months on a suitable method to remove materials from the nuclear storage ponds at Sellafield.  Working with 2 engineering graduates and Mr Bradbury they have designed and tested their novel ideas at a residential visit to Newcastle University in January and have completed a full technical report which had to be submitted to EES for assessment. Today marks the final day of this years project where students will be presenting their work to a panel of industry experts and other school teams as well as answering a series of technical and project based questions.

Wish them luck!

Mr Bradbury
