New Engineering Course

“Two groups of students chose to try out a new course on offer at Wellington from next year, Engineering” writes Mr Brown. “They were tasked with exploring the Winter Olympic sport ‘Bob Sleigh’. Students discovered and discussed key aspects affecting the performance of the athletes, not only with themselves but the bobsleigh itself. Once key factors were explored the groups were able to test three different sleigh designs. Sleighs were positioned on the end of a foot pump and ejected, once stopped the distance was measured and the process repeated. A huge well done to all students who attended!”
