SB Rail actively promoting the Rail industry and Engineering in schools and colleges

27th February 2018

SB Rail are dedicated to promoting the rail industry and Engineering to develop up and coming young Engineers.

Our HR Manager, Tracey Barber, has been attending numerous careers fairs and STEM sessions with High Schools and Colleges in order to give an overview of the industry. Most recently at Denton Community College (DCC) delivering practical STEM sessions to a large group of Year 7 pupils. During the sessions the students participated in fun, hands on activities such as designing and manufacturing egg drops and homopolar motors. Mr Knott, Careers Lead at DCC, had this to say…

“We have worked alongside SB Rail for over 12 months, helping to inspire students to consider careers within the STEM industry. They have supported the school in a number of events, including presentations, assemblies, mock interviews and practical workshops. They have worked with students from all year groups and the feedback from students is very positive. Recently, they completed engineering workshops as part of the whole school ‘Aspirations Week’. The sessions were aimed at Year 7 students and was an introduction to show the students the type of skills and attributes they need to be a successful Engineer. The egg drop challenge and magnet activity were very engaging and enjoyed by all the students. It was particularly pleasing to see how the students used their knowledge of design, maths and science to solve practical problems. The sessions with SB Rail are always professional, informative and engaging.” 

In addition, SB Rail JV partner Swietelsky recently sponsored Can4D Defenders in the Land Rover 4 x 4 remote control car challenge.  We are delighted to hear that they were placed 3rd in the regional category and will move on to the national competition in April. We wish them the best of luck!
