As Five Acres High School finished for the half term on Friday 19th October, 32 of our year 10 and 11 students travelled to Yate Academy for the first University level lecture. The lecture was based around Engineering and held by Dr Steve Bullock who specialises in aerospace dynamics and control.
The lecture gave a great insight into the many different routes of engineering, as well as the expectations of entry levels in order to study Engineering at the top Universities in the Country. Students were also wowed by some of the amazing projects that Dr Bullock has been involved in since completing his PhD at Bristol University, one of which is still ongoing, involving automated air to air refuelling. For those who are interested in looking deeper into Dr Stevens research, a number of his publications can be found at at the following link: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/engineering/people/steve-e-bullock/publications.html
