In April, we took our Year 10 students on a visit to the 2018 MACH event at Birmingham’s NEC. This huge space was packed full of exhibitors from a wide range of companies across the engineering manufacturing sector. We were fortunate enough to receive demonstrations from leading companies such as Fanuc and Intermac, who showed our students their latest innovative technologies in action. Our students, the leading engineers of the future, had a fantastic experience. They learnt lots, took advantage of opportunities to gets hands-on with some cutting-edge pieces of kit, and came home with mountains of goodies!
