On Friday 3rd November, the D&T department took 7A to visit the Wiltshire Festival of Engineering, in Trowbridge. Here they were able to explore lots of hands on activities provided by national companies and universities. The students were able to see how STEM subjects are being used in real life situations. The students could make wind turbines, try model racing cars, VR headsets, tinker with engines and see how fire special effects are made, among other things. We were also able to see how Shreddies were made and get some free samples. Students came away with goody bags and were very positive about their trip.
