Year 8 Science & Technology Trip to AMRC CymruYear 8 Science & Technology Trip to AMRC Cymru
26 Ysgol Treffynnon Year 8 students joined schools from across North Wales at AMRC Cymru for an event celebrating North Wales Engineering, Manufacturing and Energy.
Organised by Deeside Business Forum, students were able to interact with local employers including TATA Steel, Toyota and Airbus, taking part in fun challenges, handling exhibits and hearing about opportunities for careers and further study. Students also heard from AMRC’s own engineers who showcased their robotic, virtual reality and 3D printing technology. AMRC is the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and is part of the University of Sheffield.
Lily Pilkington, one of the students who attended said: ‘I liked looking at the machines and asking questions to the engineers about what they do and how stuff works. It was a fun day!’.
Students also left topping the leader board of a Toyota challenge!
