Over the last two weeks, students on the BTEC Tech Award Engineering course have taken part in an after school engineering club at Newcastle College.
The students worked with staff from the college to produce an engineering component. Over the two evenings, they used a range of hand and machine tools to produce the component and learned how to use specialised measuring equipment such as a Vernier height gauge, scribers, punches and industrial drilling machines.
The students had a great time and learned some new skills that they will bring back into school when they complete their coursework.
The Newcastle college lecturer was very impressed with how hard the students worked and could definitely see their potential for further study and employment in an engineering role. ... See MoreSee Less
