Inspiring the engineers of the future

39 children from Eversfield Preparatory School in Solihull took a trip to Unipart Manufacturing in Coventry last week to see science and engineering in the real world.

The Year 6 pupils also visited the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering, which is a collaboration with Unipart Manufacturing and Coventry University and situated on the same site.

Pupils got to see how products were made from the design stage and also see the latest robotic technology in action.

Mrs Sliney said: “The children loved their trip to Unipart as they got see technology which they have never had the chance to see before. We’ve certainly inspired the children as many said that they want to be engineers when they grow up.”
