Big turnout at Microsoft taster event

Yesterday, we welcomed over hundred potential students and their parents to our taster event at lead industry partner Microsoft.

Alongside displays, demos and activities from our lead and associate industry partners, both UTC students and staff were on hand to speak about their experiences.

The visitors were keen to find out about many different aspects of the UTC including project-based learning, travel, independent learning, the curriculum and enrichment to name a few.

Year 10 UTC student George Osborne said: “People were really interested to hear about the projects we’veworked on with different partners. I’ve really enjoyed talking to lots of people throughout the evening; hopefully I’ll see some of the students at the UTC in September!”

The next taster event will take place at lead industry partner Network Rail on May 1, 5.30-7.30pm. More information can be found
