Rolls Royce Visit

On Tuesday 20th March the winners from our February S.T.E.A.M. Show visited the Rolls Royce Head Office as part of their prize from our official sponsors. A range of department visits and presentations were arranged for the students to give them an insight into the different projects worked on by Rolls Royce as well as an introduction to some of the different engineering, computing and science jobs within the company.

As part of the trip the students were able to speak to 2 young people who worked at Rolls Royce as part of the Apprenticeship Programme. They visited a control room where they were amazed to find that every Rolls Royce Aeroplane Engine in the world is monitored electronically to ensure they are all working correctly and so that any repairs or diagnostics can be undertaken before they ever become a problem. They observed engines being manufactured as well as tested, all of the students were surprised at the vast size of the engines being produced.

The following quotes are from some of the students following the trip....


Daisy said, “I enjoyed learning about what Rolls Royce is planning for the future to make engines more effective and environmentally friendly”


Rachel said, “I now want to take engineering at GCSE and maybe even go into engineering in the army.”


Zara said, “The trip has given me an appreciation for Science in real life, applicable fields and how many people work within it. It has inspired me to consider the many areas of a science career instead of limiting myself to what I know - I want to expand my knowledge.”


Alfie said, “The trip hasn’t especially changed what I would like to do, but has made me glad and excited about the choices I have made. “
