Engineering Talk

Our sixth formers were privileged to have a visit from Professor Stephen Turnock of the University of Southampton who came to speak about careers and study in Engineering. The students were given a fantastic insight into all aspects of engineering from acoustic to marine and also learnt about the design of the “Blackroc” skeleton sledge. This was developed by Ship Science graduates Rachel Blackburn and James Roche initially as part of their postgraduate studies with Stephen, with ‘Arthur’ used by Amy Williams and ‘Mervyn’ by Lizzy Yarnold.
