Spotlight on EUTC [Spring 2017 - Issue 03]

This week at EUTC we've been celebrating Science Week - we've had the Royal Navy UTC Challenge, science-themed Film Club and we wrapped the week with a workshop from Neil Rice (Liquid Projection Lighting Specialist). And, for the first time ever - we broadcast live from the EPIC! (Sorry about the sound - It was our first stream)

Royal Navy UTC Challenge

Albeit with a few hiccups, our team did incredibly well! They came #7th for Vessel Design out of 70 teams and #3 in Pitch and Presentation out of #70. Outstanding. The ship did sink at one point, however, some quick initiative from the team, a spot of foam and they were back on their way! We plan to run this yet again next year but with more teams including Year 10s.

Year 13 Drama Trip

Next week our Drama Dept. will be taking students to the National Theatre (SouthBank) to see Hedda Gabbler.
