axitech goes to school
Science education is important. Among other things, it gives young people the means to interrogate the world around them and within them, creating solutions to the problems we all face and developing a more anchored sense of self. And in an uncertain world transforming before our eyes, the value of objectivity can be particularly pronounced. So axitech participated in a Physics at Work event at Plashet Girls’ School, East Ham, arranged by the Institute of Physics.
The goal was to get the girls interested in, and excited by, the practical applications of physics. We used a remote-controlled car to simulate a road accident and demonstrated how our technology detects the collision and transmits precise, critical information to the emergency services. And whilst we may not have a full set of converts to physics, we certainly hope the girls went away with a renewed sense that the world is their oyster!
