Students from a village high school have been taking part in a robotic search and rescue mission at a city college.

Stoke-on-Trent College teamed up with Young Engineers to help engage and inspire schoolchildren from across the area about engineering through a range of interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities.

Year 10 and 11 learners, who are currently studying NVQ Level 1 Engineering and BTEC level 2 Engineering through a School-Links programme, as well as Endon High School pupils, joined together for the event that climaxed in a robotic search and rescue mission.

They were joined by STEM Ambassadors who visited the college in a bid to help raise interest and awareness of engineering careers among young people.

The event also allowed students to explore, investigate and discover STEM subjects in a fun and stimulating learning environment.

It is hoped that more young people will opt for STEM-based career options and learning moving forwards.

At present students aged 14 to 16 years can apply through their school to undertake a vocational qualification the college one day a week, and attend school for the remaining four days.
