Monozukuri Caravan Project at Nissan

On Wednesday and Thursday (17th/18th Jan) we took part in this project at Nissan. We learnt about the history of the Nissan company - Did you know they didn't begin making cars, they made machines! We also found out about how cars have changed over time and how they are made now. 

We also got to build our own Lego cars and worked as a team in a production line to create some cars. 

After lunch, we had a tour of some equipment and saw a robot that had been programmed to follow a series of commands.

We then worked as a team to complete some tasks linked to the skills needed when making a Nissan car.

We had a fantastic day!
