D&T in School

Some of our year 3 and 4 children had the most exciting morning today: we went to UTC to complete 4 different D&T projects and learn about net zero and wind turbines. We built a wind turbine, designed a bird feeder platform, used coding, built circuits, played on VR, checked 3D printers and laser machines and most importantly we had biscuits and juice as well as went on a REAL bus! We EVEN got presents and won prizes!   Thank you Jen from UTC and all the students who were amazing at teaching our children! Hope we can come again!
