Society of the Month March 2017

Society of the Month

This month has been very busy and eventful for March’s winner, Engineers without Borders.

Chiefly their success has been shaped by three main events…

Most noticeably, their biggest event of the year, the Nuclear Power Debate. This is a debate organised on the motion ‘Nuclear Power should play a major role in Britain energy future and replace fossil fuel’. The debate had  6 speakers, 3 in favour of the motion and 3 against the motion. This event had a great impact on raising awareness of the issue of nuclear energy especially amongst an audience of engineering students who will work in providing energy for Britain in the future.

Engineers without Borders have also been busy with a number of outreach activities. The first of which was an afterschool science club where students built water filters with pupils and explained to them the principles of filtration. The second was a ‘Water for the World’ Workshop. This activity had a lasting effect on students with their science studies as they begin to get a grasp on engineering principles and widened the university outreach to school students as they were very interested to learn more about life in Newcastle University.
