Ampleforth Eggs-ercise their Minds

John Hesford Uncategorized

Labman was happy to welcome Ampleforth College onsite for a visit this week. Mr Anglim and his Design & Technology, STEM Scholars were onsite to see how their subjects apply to real world applications. Andrew led an in-depth tour, careers talk and a discussion on robotics.

We finished our tour with the Egg Drop Challenge. We didn’t shell out for expensive building materials though! Armed only with paper, string and a few other household items the students had to create a contraption to help the Egg survive a drop. The eggcelent students, smashed our eggspectations and created several cracking devices. The overall winners didn’t put all their eggs in one basket though. A combination of a crumple zone and parachute won the day. Well done Ampleforth.
