In support of the nationwide initiative to get children more engaged with the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) Chela are sponsoring a Model Rocket Car Competition at local school, Dame Alice Owen. Organised by The Learning Partnership (TLP) the event will engage the pupils in elements of science (motion/force/friction), Computer Science (measurement of time/speed etc.), Design and Technology and as well as being of great educational benefit promises to be a lot of fun.
Our donation will be made direct to the school and will cover the cost of training 2 teachers to safely manage the race days and for the equipment required to enter the competition. Chela MD, Iwan Fisher, says he really liked the idea behind the event. ‘The art to successful education is making it fun and kids love a competition so this seemed like a great event to support. Personally, I’d love to think an event like this was a catalyst in getting some children interested in problem solving and may be even to pursue a future career in the sciences.’
