Bridgend’s WWII Warships: The recently rediscovered plaque commemorating Bridgend’s HMS Urge, Maesteg’s HMS Mallow and Porthcawl’s MTB 47, purchased by money raised in the respective towns during the Warship Weeks of the Second World War, is now proudy displayed at Bridgend Local and Family History Centre, alongside the plaque for the HMS Urge.
Brynteg Comprehensive News: The Engineering Education Scheme offers pupils the opportunity to work in conjunction with a local company on an STEM based project. This year some of our year 12 pupils worked with SAS International. There were two teams: the ‘Energy Recovery’ and the ‘Patination’ team. They worked for many hours on top of their studies to produce innovative solutions to the problems set.
Having written extensive project reports, the teams then travelled to Parc Y Scarlets, Llanelli on April 19 to present the projects to the competition judges alongside 75 other school and college groups. This was a fantastic opportunity for the pupils to explain their ideas and solutions to others and to see what other projects all the other schools have been working on, as well as putting themselves forward for some of the 12 awards on offer.
Both teams impressed the judges with their projects, with the Energy Recovery team being nominated for two awards, ‘The Best Application of Engineering and Technology’ and the ‘Most Innovative Solution to the Problem’.
