On Tuesday 10 July 2018, Bracknell Town Mayor Cllr Sandra Ingham attended a Science and Technology Day for local gifted and talented students, held at Bracknell & Wokingham College.
The Town Mayor observed the variety of activities being undertaken by mixed school teams of Year 8 and 9 pupils. The Science and Technology challenges included robotics, diagnostics and e-fit, all facilitated by University Medical Students.
Six pupils attended from Brakenhale School with their teacher Mrs Lowe, Head of Product Design and STEM. Two pupils: Paige Palmer and Bethany Braizer were part of the Diagnostics winning team.
“Science and Technology is a hugely exciting area providing the opportunity to change the world. Issues such as combatting disease, sustainability, managing the world’s resources, climate change and renewable energy are all challenges that can benefit from the work of mathematicians, scientists, engineers and medics,” said Cllr Sandra Ingham.
The event was organised by MSC Projects Ltd. It is a competitive event and the overall winning team represents Berkshire at a regional final at St Marys University, London later in the year.
