1 Mins read

Three Northern Regional College students have spent two weeks at a prestigious Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) institute in America this summer. Michael Spiers from Ballymena, Daneil McKillop from Ballymoney and Jack Smith also from Ballymoney have taken part part in the ‘FRONTIERS’ programme at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Participation on the programme has been facilitated by the Department for Employment and Learning.

The focus of the programme is on students learning current laboratory techniques and exploring unsolved problems across a wide spectrum of engineering, mathematics, science and robotics disciplines

The students were selected following participation in the annual Colleges NI ‘Business and Education through Skills and Training’, or ‘BEST Awards’. The ‘BEST Awards’ celebrate the creative and innovative talent within Northern Ireland’s six regional colleges.
