Today, Year 5 visited the University of Sunderland to explore the exciting word of Engineering! We had an absolutely fantastic day and managed to get a real taste of what studying engineering would be like at university. Here are a few of our highlights!

First of all, we had a go at creating lots of different circuits using equipment such as a switches, motors and resistors:

We then had the chance to interview engineers from the university and from Nissan, who could tell us more about how the world of Engineering works, and what routes we can explore if it is something we would like to consider in the future:

And finally, we had a campus tour of the University, where we explored the TV and Movie studios; the gaming suite; a mock court room; the library and much more! What a day!
