Almond Engineering is proud to be working with Deans Community High School and teacher David Dodds to support two teams the school has entered in the F1 for Schools competition. Stephen Burrows (Designer) and Chris Smith (Chairman) recently met both teams to give some support on material selection and designing for manufacture. Almond Engineering will also manufacture the cars wheels to the designs of the students. Both teams were very switched on and have produced excellent designs; we are looking forward to seeing their completed cars and wish them every success in this competition.
We have now participated in several STEM activities with the school and we are really enjoying the enthusiasm and interest of the students and staff alike. We hear a lot about the skills shortage in Precision Engineering and it is great to see schools like Deans working to make students aware of, and equip them for, opportunities in engineering.
