A top of the range car got students revved up about the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths.
A team of engineers from McLaren visited The Windsor Boys’ School and brought their latest creation, a McLaren 570s, with them to show to the next generation of engineers.
The display formed part of a workshop which was organised with the aim of encouraging more youngsters to study STEM subjects and pursue careers in industries such as engineering.
McLaren employees gave a run-down of the work that is required to build a supercar, from the design right down to the door’s state-of-the-art hinges.
The event, on Thursday, November 12, was also attended by A-level students from The Windsor Girls’ School, Eton College and Newlands Girls’ School in Maidenhead.
Phil Hall, a design and technology teacher at The Windsor Boys’ School, said: “This is a great way of raising the profile to show these subjects are really important.”
