We were pleased to welcome some year 10 engineering students from Ousedale School to our Northampton head quarters. They are all studying STEM subjects and interested to see what an automation company does. They were a keen and enthusiastic group and wanted to see an automation company in action.
After a short introduction to both Festo and pneumatics they carried out practical workshops including the difference between a pneumatic cylinder and a Festo Fluid Muscle. They then went on a tour around the Festo display area before completing further more complicated pneumatic circuit workshops.
We discussed how they could progress in careers in engineering and we talked about our apprentice programme at Festo.
Festo are firmly committed to inspiring and developing young engineers for the future. This encompasses support of local schools, colleges and universities within a variety of programs and events.
