Last week, CAL International exhibited at All About Stem’s Big Bang Fair NW 2019! The exhibition for school pupils saw a number of sponsors and exhibitors hosting fantastic interactive activities and competitions to inspire and engage the next generation of STEM professionals.
CAL International held a go kart pit-stop challenge on the day, where teams of 2 pupils needed to remove the tyres from a go kart using spanners, swap them with their partner on the other side of the go kart and then refit them. The challenge was held in two age categories, year seven to nine and year ten to eleven. The prize for the quickest time of the day in each category was a 3D printer for their school!
In the year ten and eleven category, the winners were Wirral Grammar School for Boys with an amazing time of just 59 seconds! After contacting the school to let them know the great news, CAL International’s Group Engineering Manager, Andy, and a CAL apprentice, Matthew, visited the school to present them with their 3D printer.
The presentation took place in a Year 10 assembly with the boys who achieved the winning time being invited onto the stage to be congratulated and also receive their own prizes from CAL International. Their individual prizes were an electronic vernier calliper and an engineer’s reference handbook which they can use if they wish to pursue a career in engineering!
Thank you to the staff at Wirral Grammar School for Boys for making us feel so welcome and congratulations again on winning the 3D printer!
