FORM 5 DT TRIP TO ENGINUITY, IRONBRIDGE

Form 5 Enginuity Visit May 2016 007

On Tuesday 16th May, as part of their Design and Technology curriculum, pupils from Year 5 visited Enguinuity in Ironbridge to take part in the 'Build a Bridge' Workshop.

Working in teams, the pupils followed certain design objectives to design a truss bridge using CAD software and then to construct their bridges out of art straws. The proof was in the testing as pupils went head-to-head to see which bridge structure was the strongest and most cost effective. During the visit the pupils were also able to fully explore the interactive environment at Enginuity and the visit was concluded with a leisurely drive past Ironbridge's most famous landmark.

A great day was had by all and a huge thanks goes off to the staff at Enginuity who made our visit a very memorable and enjoyable experience.
