A group of Queen Anne High School’s S2 pupils along with some of its S5 STEM leaders visited TechnipFMC in Dunfermline. TechnipFMC is a worldwide organisation who are global leaders in energy technologies.
This visit was a key part of the pupils’ Engineering Trust Bronze Award project as it helped them gain some insight into the Engineering Industry as well as provide them with the opportunity to meet with their Industry Mentors. Under guidance from Industry Mentors, the pupils are also working on a project around the theme of zero waste.
On this visit the young people experienced a tour of the 3D Printing workshops and the manufacturing factory. Pupils also got to witness the manufacturing of a range of multimillion-pound sea units that are produced to help mine for oil and gas.
The young people had the opportunity to speak to and question various different engineers about the many different roles that they have and how they collectively work together as part of a team to make these amazing machines and robots. It was a great opportunity for the young people to hear about the many different pathways into Engineering such as Apprenticeships, College courses and University Degrees.
