Yr8 STEM Club Site Visit

Yr8 STEM club members finished the term with a site visit to Farran’s Construction site at the South wing of Altnagelvin Hospital- soon to be open in 2019. They had the opportunity not only to see the new wards near completion  but also a tour of the  ‘underworld’  basements gave pupils an insight into the electrical installations, steam heating systems and water supplies all part of the process when managing this build. An enthusiastic and very interested group of Yr8 students also quizzed the female structural engineer  about her own school experiences and career path into this line of work.
