During the summer 2005, two students from King Edward VI School in Morpeth used the world class facilities in the School to finalise their design for the EU Contest for Young Scientists. in Moscow. Naomi Wheeler and Claire Fugill represented the United Kingdom with their project entitled 'Advance Warning of a Lubricated Bearing Failure System’. The project was originally underaken as part of the Engineering in Schools project, which is supported by the Engineering Education Scheme and the initial work was performed using the facilities in EECE. Despite failing to win the overall prize for the best project, the girls really enjoyed their project work and were grateful for access to the facilities and support offered by the School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering.
