Engineers of the Future?

Six year 8 students (Matthew Brennan, Esme Brigden, Zoe Nelson, James Polhill, Jessica Ruddock and Patrick Stedman) recently attended an ‘Introduction to Engineering Day’ run by Rockwell Collins UK Ltd in Burgess Hill who manufacture aircraft training simulators. The students learnt about the various engineering job roles within the company and participated in practical activities including building a small projector, 3D modelling using Photoshop and making a large mirror using the same material crisp packets are made from. They also got to fly and land a plane!
