On Friday 4th May, this year’s Engineering Education Scheme team attended the Celebration and Assessment Day (CAD) at Cranmore Park. During the day, we presented the project which we had been working on during Friday afternoons. Our project was entitled ‘Bringing Hyperloop to the West Midlands’ and looked at the potential for new high-speed transport systems around the country. In preparation for the CAD we were required to produce a written report, stating our solution to the project brief and how we came to decide upon that solution. We conducted research into costs, the economic benefits of improved transport links and the constraints on the construction of a Hyperloop system. This led us to the final design of our proposed route, which would run from Liverpool to Cambridge with additional stations at Birmingham and Oxford. The day itself involved a final presentation to engineers from various companies, and talks by engineers themselves, including from our mentor company Arup. We also answered questions at our display stand, which featured the model of a Hyperloop bridge we had made as part of our project. We would like to thank Mrs Hall for organising the scheme, and also our mentors from Arup for their helpful advice throughout the project
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.
