Year 10 Visit to Morson Group

Year 10 Visit to Morson Group

On our recent Citizenship Day a group of Year 10 students visited local firm, Morson Group to gain an insight into careers in Design Engineering.

Students were split into two groups and completed a spaghetti tower building challenge, a tour of the building and got to speak to employees who work in different areas of engineering, from Nuclear to Civil.  They had the opportunity to meet engineers who had started as apprentices and others who had gone to university first.

Moorside pupils achieved an impressive 26 cm in 16 minutes in the spaghetti tower challenge, the tower had to support the weight of a marshmallow and be freestanding!

Several students are thinking of doing some work experience at the company to prepare them further for careers in Engineering.

Thanks to Mr Eden for driving the minibus and to Mr Wilson for accompanying us on the visit!
