Morgan Sindall Construction

Last week, Morgan Sindall Construction collaborated with Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology to engage students in a range of construction-based activities.

Their Cambridge team welcomed a group of nine students for a week’s work experience, in which they completed a project brief. This included 2D design workshops and bringing their projects to life with a 3D virtual tour, in addition to learning about the career journey of one of their apprentices, Keelan Boon, and a Trinity College site tour.

Morgan Sindall Construction are delivering the ‘Design Engineer Construct: Class of your Own’ qualification scheme with CAST, this provided some brilliant opportunities for the students to get a full and rounded experience of the industry.

The event, and week as a whole, was a great success – and we saw a rise in the number of students that were interested in construction as a result.

Cows about Cambridge

Morgan Sindalls Construction and Infrastructure have been working with the Year 10 students on their DEC GCSE. They asked us to become involved in the ‘Cows about Cambridge’ Art Project that will see a number of life-size fibreglass cow models and small herds of ‘mini-moos’ being put on display around Cambridge between March and June.

Morgan Sindalls asked us to decorate the mini-moo with images of the building designs the students have been creating thus far. ‘MORCA’ was returned to Cows about Cambridge last week in preparation for the display and will then be returned to us.

FirstTech Challenge

On Friday 7th February, 2 teams from CAST competed in the Eastern Championships of the FirstTech Challenge UK Robotics Competition at the IWM Duxford.

Both teams have been building robots after school since September and with both teams qualifying for the knock-out rounds (one team being knocked out in the Divisional Semi-finals and the other losing in the Divisional Final in a play-off by only 1 point) they have qualified for the National Championships to be held in The Copper Box Arena on The Olympic Park on the 27th and 28th March.

Our thanks go to Qualcomm for providing an engineer to come in and work with and advise the teams over the past few months.

MyTutor Maths Programme

We’re really pleased to share the exciting news that this year, a group of our Year 11 pupils are receiving online one-to-one tuition in Maths with MyTutor, to help get them ready for GCSE exam success.

The lessons are designed to build confidence, reinforce classwork and fill in students’ individual learning gaps.

Through the programme, our students have been matched with top tutors studying at the UK’s leading universities. Lessons are hosted in MyTutor’s interactive online learning space and are all recorded, so pupils can use them as a revision tool in the run-up to exams.

For more information, visit the MyTutor site to see how it works, or have a look at the below video of MyTutor on the BBC.
