On the 12th July, Year 5 were invited (at the last minute!) to attend the Teen Tech City of Tomorrow Showcase day. During the year, children from the across the city were invited to design and build domestic and public buildings of the future. According to Teen Tech,
‘Construction and engineering industries are woefully misunderstood and the project aims to shift perceptions of the contemporary construction industry.’
We didn’t have the opportunity, this year, to participate during class time but two of fantastic children (Blaze and Miles) made buildings at home to take to the Showcase. The children had an excellent day working with different companies to complete a range of activities from computer programming, app designing and building as well as 3D printing!
The children were awarded individual certificates for their ideas and participation throughout the day. Blaze and Miles also celebrated success, winning certificates for their excellent building designs, well done!
