Many thanks to Kerry Baker, Engineering Liaison Officer for Engineering at Leeds University and two of her students for today's workshop.
The class explored engineering as it related to a product designed and manufactured in Leeds, made their own mock-product to take home, and worked in teams to build a GIANT tetrahedron structure.
The activities were designed to challenge pupils to communicate, practice, test and create using real life examples of engineering practices and processes.
