Jaguar Landrover factory visit
Forty Year 8 students went to the Jaguar/Landrover Factory with the DT department on Tuesday 22 May to experience a day learning about Just In Time, Mass and Batch production. They got the opportunity to go onto the factory production line to see cars like the F type and the XE being manufactured. They then took part in a group activity where they had to produce as many identical Lego cars as possible and put their understanding of Just In Time production into action. This was a perfect experience for students to understand about different careers in engineering and to understand the theory topics for their DT exam.
