Sparks flew at Balsall Common Primary recently when pupils took part in an Eco Science and Technology Week.
The students had talks from the likes of Energy Group Solutions about solar panels and KWI Grinding. Steve Adams, from Walker-Adams brought in a racing buggy and talked to years five and six about progressing a project from the initial designs to a completed product.
A group of year six students also visited Prodrive in Banbury to learn how vehicles’ bodies were strengthened enough to withstand higher impact and how engines are re-engineered to deliver greater power and flexibility.
Howard Rose, funding and publicity manager at the school, said: “The whole week was absolutely fantastic and the feedback from the children has consolidated our view that this has really been a week that they will remember for a long time to come.”
