Year 6 visit the Unipart factory

Standard

As part of our car topic, we spent this morning at the Unipart factory which makes car parts for lots of different car manufacturers. We had a tour of the factory floor, we took part in an engineering challenge and talked to some of the designers and engineers. We had a great time! We even had lunch in the factory canteen.
