Flood Control International was recently contacted by Fairmead School and asked if a representative could visit for a careers day.
Fairmead School is a school for students with Moderate Learning Difficulties and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. We sent one of our Design Managers along to talk to the students about flood prevention and the wider water management and engineering industry. The classes were very hands on with the students building their own flood defences. The budding engineers were also provided with a demo system that they could assemble to get a feel for the different materials and mechanisms that operate a real-life flood barrier.
The feedback from the students and the teachers (as well as our Design Manager) was fantastic!
