TechBay 2017 inspires Y8 and 9

On Thursday, 9th November, twenty-four students from Years 8 and 9 went along to the English Riviera Centre to visit the annual TechBay event as part of the TGGS STEM programme.


TechBay is an event designed to inspire young people and develop their interest in careers related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.


There were many local businesses representing STEM related opportunities in Torbay and South Devon, including work relating to the design of jet turbines from high tech alloys, fibre optic couplings for undersea communications cables and high tech monitoring for the medical profession.


The girls all participated with great enthusiasm and showed a real aptitude for some of the tasks, often intended for much older students.  Well done to all of those who participated, and we hope the event has whetted your appetite for the engineering industry.
