On Friday, 17th March 2017, as part of the Science curriculum, Year 7, 8 and 9 students visited the Transport Museum Depot in Acton Town. Our students participated in an Inspiring Engineering workshop. They collaboratively created a new underground line, applying scientific and safety considerations. Students, as well as the teachers, were enthusiastic and accepted the challenge willingly! Our lines were judged by a Transport for London (TfL) engineer.
3rd place: The Teachers Trio (Miss Bosnjak, Ms Pagliccia and Ms Cottereau)
2nd place: The Fast track egg-gineers (Aza, Isabella, Kara, Raphaëlle, Giulia)
1st place: The Eggseptionnals team (Philippine, Salomé, Lily, Angeles, Lucas)
The next activity included a scavenger hunt in the Museum, where they could see and sit in various types of London's transport, spanning the twentieth century. Lastly, the students were able to interview two engineers who work for TfL. Our students were very fortunate to participate in this workshop, as the Museum Depot is only open twice a year to the public.
We would like to thank Mrs Delphine Cottereau, a parent of the school who accompanied the students and teachers on this outing.
