Enriching experiences

Beverston Engineering Ltd


Year 5 children had an exciting visit to Beverston Engineering Ltd, they were able to experience a workplace in the manufacturing industry.


Beverston Engineering helped give our children a taster of what engineering for the Aerospace and Pharmaceutical industries looks like. They used tools, met with staff and listened to a presentation about what engineers actually do. The children took a lot from their visit and now they can put their new knowledge into practice during their D&T projects.


Testing and Evaluating 

After building our bridges, we tested their strength by adding weight to the structure to see whether it could withstand further pressure. This experience allowed us to see whether our bridge design and building process had been successful.
