First BSE Imagineering Club

We are delighted to report on the success of the town’s first Imagineering Club which is up and running at St James Middle School, funded by the trust.

A group of enthusiastic Year 7 and 8 pupils are, this term making an electric car in the first of three projects in the year-long after school club. Led by Tracey Hunt, Head of Design at St James, and supported by sixth form Vinten Ambassadors from Bury St Edmunds County Upper School and by a STEM  Ambassador (encouraging Science , Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)  from Thales, one of the town’s two “Vinten” companies, the students are learning useful new skills as well as gaining a deeper understanding of the world of engineering. The Vinten Trust is keen to support other Imagineering Clubs and Middle School staff can gain more information by contacting the clerk.
