Boiler team radiate success

Four QE pupils have successfully completed this year’s Engineering Education Scheme. Jonathan Daniels, Patrick McHugh, Theepan Saravanpavan and Kelvin Chan worked with the housebuilder and regeneration specialist, Lovell, to design a biomass boiler.

They ended the year on a high note with a Celebration Day at Ford’s Technical Centre in Dunton, where they set up a display stand for their project. They gave a 15-minute presentation in which they discussed their concepts and showed the EES assessors their plans and model.

“The pupils presented with clarity and confidence, impressing both the assessors and the other schools invited to take part in this prestigious scheme, which is sponsored by the Engineering Development Trust.,” says teacher Simon Vincent.

As part of the day the pupils also presented their concept to assessors for the BA Crest Awards, a nationally recognised accreditation scheme for project work in Science and Technology. All team members achieved the highest standard – the BA Crest Gold Award.
