J C-B Engineering Consultants kicked off a community outreach program with an exhibition at Brighton & Hove’s first annual Motor Show in June 2017.
3 educational games were developed in-house in order to teach young children some basic engineering fundamentals. The principles covered were:
- 1. Newtons 3rd Law of Motion, aerodynamics and gravity:
- Demonstrated using air powered rockets. 2. Kinetic Energy, Renewable sources of energy (wind power), aerodynamics:
- Demonstrated using miniature wind powered cars. 3. Structural Mechanics:
- Demonstrated using a selection of load bearing shapes.
Children were invited to participate in the games and certificates of participation were handed out as a form of recognition and encouragement.
The event was very well received and much positive feedback was given to the organisers. We are invited back in 2018.
