Technology Electrical Engineering Day

Home  /  News  /  Current Page

On Friday 8th November we held an Electrical Engineering day in the Technology Department.  A group of Year 10 students were joined by girls from Mercy College for a masterclass in Electrical Engineering.  The session was led by a female professional Electrical Engineer in cooperation with WomensTec who are an organisation aimed at encouraging more girls into the male-dominated roles within the construction industry.

The students discussed careers in the electrical industry while also learning how to design an electrical installation for a new house.  Following this, they had a practical session and learned how to wire a ring main circuit. A successful and enjoyable day and special thanks to WomensTec!
