U Cell members at Into University

Following the successful collaboration at Bury St Edmunds’ Science Festival. EWB and UCell took to East London to introduce a group of 11 to 14 year olds to engineering. The event took place as part of a STEM week held by the Bow branch of IntoUniversity, a charity dedicated to inspiring young people to achieve their full potential. Following a presentation of all things exciting in engineering, the workshops were conducted. The students were introduced to hydrogen fuel cells throughout the building and racing of the fuel cell demo kits. In the straw bridge building exercise EWB’s Rebecca taught the children how to build trusses with their straws resulting in impressive structures! To complete the session, the students learnt how to build their own phone chargers whilst drinking a refreshing smoothie they blended themselves on the blender bike.
