Year 13 pupils partcipate in Sentinus R&D programme

On 16 October pupils involved in the Sentinus R&D programme spent a day with their link company NIE Networks in Ballymena  to commence work on a specially commissioned project developing a solution to help detect moisture in paper-insulated cables. The current method of testing has several problems including risks due to open flames, the production of hazardous waste and time consumption. The task for the students is to find an alternative, practical method to test the insulation while considering financial and environmental effects as well as health and safety. Six pupils from Year 13 worked with representatives from the company and found the day to be extremely interesting and informative.
