Skills for Tomorrow Workshop at the University of Worcester
This week, a group of Year Eight pupils visited the University of Worcester for a careers day.
When we arrived Robin Walker, MP for Worcester, greeted us. After he gave a speech, we dispersed into groups to do the scheduled activities.
The first workshop was all about transport. We looked at both modern and old buses, and in small groups we designed our own bus of the future. We looked at environmental issues and we identified all of the things that public transport needs.
Afterwards, many business stalls had been set up, and we were given the opportunity to ask questions and discuss our thoughts with professionals. Then, we took part in a tourism workshop where we designed our own tourist attraction, taking into account of the environment and local citizens.
The final workshop talked about balanced diets and good materials to store food in. We had the chance to design our own frozen dessert that was both cost effective and good for the environment.
We had learned a lot and had a fun time doing so.
