On Wednesday 17th October, the KEHS Engineering Education Scheme team attended a project launch day at the RAF Museum in Cosford. They started the day by practising their organisational skills before the main challenge: creating a rocket propelled car that would successfully travel the furthest. This greatly tested the girls knowledge of Physics and aeronautics: one member of our team insisted on building a light three-wheeled vehicle, which Mrs Hall correctly predicted would travel in circles before it skidded to a halt. However, this unconventional structure of the car did not prevent them from being awarded second place! The remaining portion of the day was related to different real life applications of Physics and the value of Engineering. Thank you to Mrs Hall for organising this wonderful opportunity!
On Friday 23 February, the KEHS and KES African and Caribbean Society hosted the first King Edward’s Foundation wide Conference. We had 120 students from across 12 schools from across the KEVI Foundation attend the day.
