This week has been STEM week in school and, as part of the week, some of the Year 6 children were lucky enough to go on a visit to the Nissan factory. Possibilities is a key driver of the school’s curriculum and this visit allowed the children to understand and see a future career path as an engineer. Whilst at the factory, they explored the possible careers in STEM available at Nissan. The children learned about how cars are assembled on a production line and why teamwork is so important when working this way. They created their own ‘production lines’ and worked as a team to produce the Nissan ‘buddy’ from Lego. The children also toured the factory and learned about the machinery used to build the different parts of a car. Finally, the children put the STEM skills to good use and explored a range of workstations to be real-life engineers.
