A Day in the Life of a Metrologist

01 Mar 2017

Students from Anglo-Chinese School (ACS) had the opportunity to experience the life of a metrologist last November!

Over five days, the students visited NMC’s Temperature, Length and Dimensional Laboratories to shadow NMC’s metrologists to experience how metrologists practise the science of measurement in a measurement science laboratory. For these students, they are now more aware of what metrologists do, and the experience had sparked their interests in the science of measurement.
