Caterpillar Maths Trip



On the afternoon of Thursday, 17th March, twelve of our 9e students visited the Caterpillar Learning and Inspiration Centre at Desford.

Dressed in 'high-Vis' vests and wearing safety   glasses, they participated in a guided factory tour looking at the management and production of the Caterpillar backhoe loader. Back in the         classroom, they undertook a real hands-on    challenge to construct a brake pedal, identifying and fitting the necessary components from a    series of photographic instructions. Alyssia    Hawkins out-performed all other students to   complete this task in record time!

Our final classroom task 'the lego challenge' saw both of our student groups commended for their    excellent teamwork. 

The visit provided a valuable insight into engineering for our students, with several inspired to consider  future career options in this area.  A very interesting time was had by all!
