Nissan’s school engineering event inspires thousands of young minds

Nissan has brought the world of engineering and manufacturing to life for 1,700 youngsters with its inspirational two-week Schools Engineering event.

Children from 35 schools across County Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland visited Nissan Sunderland Plant to see how car manufacturing has evolved over the past 30 years and to learn how Nissan is creating a new ecosystem for making electric vehicles with renewable energy. The hands-on experience also involved a team challenge to build a marble rollercoaster – using just paper and sticky tape.

Adam Pennick, Vice President, Manufacturing, at Nissan Sunderland, said: “There is no better way to be inspired by the world of engineering and manufacturing than to see it up close, first hand.

“This is a fantastic event, which challenges youngsters to think as engineers and which helps shape their future career plans. I know, because we have members of the team now working at the plant who were inspired by the Skills Foundation.
