TDK Corporation is pleased to announce that TDK-Lambda UK has sponsored the STEM Club Best Club Project South West Region heats again this year. The Best Project award, which was presented during The Big Bang Fair South West held in June at the University of Exeter, went to Treviglas College based in Newquay for its project entitled: “How does the size of the hole used to create a vortex affect its power?”

“TDK-Lambda has been actively involved with local schools and academies on a number of STEM related projects over the years,” says Phil Scotcher, General Manager, TDK-Lambda UK. “Sponsoring the STEM Club Best Club Project award reiterates our commitment to supporting education in the South West.”

Each STEM project undertaken at TDK-Lambda’s Ilfracombe facility is developed and closely monitored by local management to ensure all Health & Safety requirements are met, and that the content fulfils the course needs. Recent projects included component reviews using TDK-Lambda’s state-of-the-art test & measurement equipment, and controlling the ambient environment for the surface mount component placement production lines and goods-in area.

STEM Club projects from across the South West region are judged against the National Science and Engineering Competition criteria. The best entries are invited to the national finals held every year in March at the Big Bang Fair UK at the NEC, Birmingham.

The Big Bang Fair South West is managed by Education Business Partnership South West and is the region’s biggest celebration of youth science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
