VIP Visit to Airbus, Broughton
Seven Year 9 pupils finally got to visit the Airbus factory in Broughton North Wales this week. The VIP visit was part of the prize for winning the Transport category at the TeenTech Awards last summer. The trip had been planned on two previous occasions, but it first clashed with the prize winner’s reception at Buckingham Palace, then with an award ceremony for another STEM competition that some of the pupils involved had won. The trip was well worth the wait though and the group were certainly given VIP treatment, with a special guided tour of this amazing facility and a wonderful and almost overwhelming buffet lunch.
