BSE 3D have an ethos of encouraging children to engage with engineering from an early age. Director Carl Morphew and Building Services Engineer Harriet Morphew presented to local primary schools about STEM, engineering roles, some fun experiments and finishing with an engineering challenge.
Carl explained how engineering influenced him when he was younger and how this ignited the spark for Harriet, who is now a STEM Ambassador and a member of Women’s Engineering Society.
The presentation also included information on how BSE 3D bring buildings to life by designing services, for example: heating, lighting, hot & cold water and the internet.
Demonstrations followed showing what can be achieved with just a few basic items found in the home. Children were given activities, one included – who can be the first to put on the following: hard hat, hi-vis jacket and safety gloves.
Culminating with a bridge building experiment. The task, to design and build a bridge with the least amount of materials using the parameters of the bridge specifications and listed materials.
