Year 9 STEM trip to FlexEnable

Published on 06/02/17

Thirteen students from Year 9 went on a half day trip to FlexEnable last Friday as part of their ten week Go 4 SET project on 'Our electronics environment'.

The students learnt about new, clever technology using the durability and flexibility of plastics to generate useful products for the electronics industry.

This includes new flexible screens for tablets, signs, watches and other wearable technology. The students saw research and development labs where products are tested sometimes to destruction before they are unleashed onto the open market. 

The projects for the students now continue up to the Assessment Event on the 24th March in Luton. They have been developing ideas for electronic solutions to problems in their school environment. 

A huge thank you to the scientists and engineers from FlexEnable for a wonderful trip and their continued support for the scheme.
