What an amazing day we’ve had today with Casting Innovations Ltd!
Mr Brooks and his team were in school all day, working on the next stage of our Heart of Willow Tree project!
First, children from Lower KS2 were able to cast their own hearts (using molten aluminium, heated to 1020 degrees!) in our incredible live workshop!
We watched Mr Brooks carefully pour the liquid metal … it was so hot, the clay mould even started to flame! 🔥
The children were so proud of their creations!
Then, in the afternoon, the whole school watched an amazing virtual version of the workshop, led by our incredible Science Ambassadors!
Finally, other classes in school had the opportunity to come and visit the workshop, to be a part of this wonderful project …
What a busy day! Well done to everyone who took part today, and a massive thank you to Mr Brooks and his team for another amazing day of Science and DT learning!
