Students work on a problem.

FOUR A-level students at a Nuneaton college have been problem solving on the factory floor with manufacturing company 3M.

The King Edward VI College students have been taking part in a sixmonth project as part of the Engineering Education Scheme programme, organised by the Royal Academy of Engineering.

The task set by the 3M plant at Atherstone - which makes industrial and commercial abrasives - was to come up with an automated system for sorting abrasive discs when they come off the assembly line.

The students - Steve Howkins, Rob Rundle, Rajesh Gurung and Tabindra Rai - had to research the problem, develop and build a prototype model, and then present their solution at an assessment day at the NEC.
