Any Budding Albert Einstein's Out There?

Exciting but confusing results from the European Organisation for Nuclear Research in Cern, has baffled the scientist.
The subatomic particles that are sent through the ground have beaten the speed of light, conflicting with Albert Einstein and his theory of special relativity.

The results of all the experiments have been put online to help find an explanation.

The news is thrilling as possibilities of time travel now seem a little more achievable, however maybe not in my life time. All the films and books on the subject start to seem realistic, HG Wells would surely approve.

For any budding Albert Einstein's the link is below:

These results have shown the importance of research and development funding. The conclusions for the future could be a revolution in physic.

Exhibition - Power of Making at the V & A


The exhibition shows amazing skills and techniques of how materials can be used in a spectacular way.
Interesting for us is the type of methods used for manufacture. Not only is welding, laser cutting, rapid prototyping or vacum forming used for general engineering but also dramatically in art.
Have fun exploring the show, on till the 2nd of January 2012.

Work Experience Placements

Support to encourage students into engineering has always been a way forward for JNDC.

Please take a look at our article in 'businessworks' as well as the FAC's newsletter.

As the summer started JNDC took on a couple of GCSE work placement students, helping them get an insight into engineering and product design.

George Garfoot commented, ' JNDC taught me what a proper work environment is really like. The people all get on, get the work done and do it really well. My project included designing parts using cool software called Solidworks, which proved easy to use. It felt good to have responsibility for the initial prototype.'
