Resonate Testing attended the Sentinus Young Innovator’s Day yesterday to further support young people in STEM. The Sentinus Young Innovator’s Day, incorporating the Big Bang Northern Ireland, is one of the largest events of its kind in the UK and aims to promote interest and engagement in the STEM subjects for all age groups.

 

We also attended the event to showcase our ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ competition to schools and colleges around the country. The event was a great success with around 20 schools/colleges expressing an interest in the competition.

 

The Shake, Rattle and Roll challenge is an exciting competition to engage students from Northern Ireland schools and colleges, providing a practical challenge to drive interest and understanding in STEM subjects and engineering. The challenge will inform students on the importance of testing in product development for structural integrity issues such as vibration, acoustics and strength.

 

The Challenge involves students building a simple structure (based on competition rules), we then vibrate each structure using our Shaker Table for up to 15 minutes to see how long it survives the vibration testing – the longest wins!
