Students and teachers visit IfM
Over 20 year nine students from Chelmer Valley High School spent the day with the IfM on 6 July. They were accompanied by some of their teachers, including the school's Head Teacher. The day's programme was divided between time in Cambridge AutoID Labs, learning about its RFID technology, and developing an understanding about manufacturing through a series of games.
Business Development Manager for the IfM's Centre for Distributed Automation and Control, who inputted on the day, said: "This visit was a wonderful opportunity for these students to gain some positive insights into the world of manufacturing. The feedback from them was certainly very enthusiastic. We hope that this kind of interaction with schools will encourage more young people to go on to train in science and engineering and, ultimately, to move into careers in the manufacturing sector."
