Avanti supports engineers of the future

Last month we sponsored a group of year 9 students from New Mills High School to partake in a course promoting physics using practical experiments.

The outdoor physics course engaged students to learn about energy transfers, Hooke's Law, motion, velocity and buoyancy through canoeing, mountain biking, climbing and bushcraft.

The students also visited our offices in Furness Vale where they got some hands-on experience doing some PLC and engineering exercises with members of our software and manufacturing teams.

They also got a tour of our manufacturing facility where they were able to see engineering in practice and met some recent school leavers and University graduates who were taking their first steps into careers in engineering.
