Testing with GB Para-Rowing

Last week a group of 2nd Year Bio-engineering students had the opportunity to take their projects down to the National Sports Centre in Bisham (near Marlow) to demonstrate them to World Championship winning GB Para-Rowers, Pam Relph and James Fox. The trip also coincided with a visit from the Minister for Sport, Helen Grant, who was on site to open the new accommodation facilities at Bisham.

The projects were well received by the athletes, and their were constructive suggestions for improvements in their next design iteration.

We look forward to running more projects in the future with the GB Para-Rowing team and developing the current projects further in preparation for the Paralympic Games in Rio 2016.
