An Engineer's Perspective

As part of our STEAM topic of Engineering this week, Year 1 and Year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Helen Beacon, who is an incredible engineer.

Helen shared with them all about her engineering career and and and the diverse machines she had worked on in the past, including helicopters.

Helen started out as an Avionics apprentice, and continued on to have an amazing aviation career travelling around the world, while raising her children at the same time. She now concentrates on Metrology, inspection and quality control.

The children really enjoyed her presentation showing the aircraft she has worked on and hearing about how Engineering is part of all our lives, in everything we do.
