A group of seven innovative ACS Cobham students presented to professionals at the Siemens UK headquarters recently, sharing their project on efficient healthcare infrastructures for a remote village in India. As part of Siemens ‘Next Big Thing Challenge’ in association with SATRO, the Surrey-based education charity, the grade 9 and 10 students were briefed at the Siemens headquarters in Frimley in January. They then selected their project topic from a list of five categories and over the past four months, have worked with a Siemens mentor to develop their ideas. Basing their project on technology, the group focused on a product which could provide remote communities around the world with the same level of healthcare as those who live in cities and towns. In May, the Cobham students pitched their idea of efficient healthcare infrastuctures for a remote village in India to a group of Siemens professionals and seven other participating schools. Haleh Agar, Coordinator of the Highly Abled programme at ACS Cobham, commented: “It was a fantastic opportunity for our students to find out what it is like to work in the technology and engineering industry directly from those who do. Working on a project like this for four months was a challenge, but they put in the effort and it was inspiring to see their ideas come together.” Apart from presenting during their visit to Siemens, students also had a chance to learn more about their products, such as MRI scanners and ultra-sound machines, which they also got to test.
