Students Attend Launch of LEGO Maritime Project

Cowes Enterprise College was proud to take part in the launch of the LEGO Maritime Project.

The event was hosted on board the Red Funnel Ferry and was a unique opportunity for the students to engage with industry experts and explore the exciting world of maritime engineering.

Led by LEGO Education Academy Trainer, Stephen G Shaw, the event was also attended by representatives from Maritime UK Solent and Maritime UK.

The students had the privilege of touring the bridge of the ferry, meeting with the captain and participating in a LEGO engineering workshop in the signature lounge.

The students were accompanied by Hayley and Chloe from Red Funnel, who offered insight into the exciting employment opportunities available in the maritime industry. The LEGO Maritime Project provided a unique platform for the students to learn about the industry and engage with experts, inspiring them to consider their future career paths.

Cowes Enterprise College Principal, Rachel Kitley said,

“We are honoured to be part of this fantastic initiative, which enables students to discover the endless possibilities of maritime engineering. It is crucial that we encourage our young people, especially girls, to consider STEM subjects and the vast range of careers they can lead to.”

Cowes Enterprise College is proud to have participated in the launch of the LEGO Maritime Project and is committed to inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals as part of the academy’s Maritime Futures curriculum, which aims to inspire and equip students with the knowledge and skills to pursue successful careers in the maritime industry.
