ENGINEERING students at Kineton High School are measuring up well.

Sixth formers on the Engineering Education Scheme have been working with Severn Trent on equipment to measure sludge levels in lakes.

After weeks of preparation, including evaluating materials and making models, the students from Kineton visited City of Birmingham University for a residential where they spent three days making components for their project. Back at school they now have to write up their report on the project and finalise their design.

During the six-month project students were encouraged to show industrial enterprise, creativity and innovation while gaining extensive experience of problem-solving, team-working and project management.
