Year 9 students had their Careers Day on Tuesday 11th December. Instead of their usual timetabled lessons students spent the day in 30 minute taster sessions finding out more about various industries ranging from Engineering and Construction to Sport, Music and Dance. Some students had to solve the riddle of the mystery guest by asking key questions to work out what he did for a living! There were also sessions covering apprenticeships, universities and finding employment.
Selected Year 9 engineering and science students spent separate time in a session with Simon Kettle of EDF Energy STEMworks (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learning more about the energy industry and working on a challenge to design a wind turbine to produce electricity.
Thank you to all our visitors for taking the time to visit Kingsmead and talk with the students.
