Hickley Academy John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre

Senior Engineering Category - Generating Understanding

Bethan created a small model generator kit that can be used as a teaching tool in classrooms, to help explain electromagnetic induction. The 3D printed kit has changeable variables that students can use to investigate how the output of the generator changes, with the use of an LED display or multimeter. The aim of her project was to aid young people’s understanding of physics by providing a more interactive method of learning.

Bethan Padbury: “Since the Fair, I have learnt how important it is to go out and find the opportunities as well as seizing the ones which come your way.”
