A group of 15 Year 12 science and engineering students recently took part in the 'Introduction to Mechanical Engineering' event run by Sheffield University.
Our students were given the opportunity to explore tribology, the branch of mechanical engineering that looks at the friction and wear of surfaces in relative motion.
Whilst there, students took part in a number of practical sessions and a university-style lecture. The day was concluded with a tour of the university facilities and chance to talk to both students and staff about application to university and life beyond Post16.
Please take time to watch our video to find out more.
On Sunday 19 February 32 Post 16 students and 4 staff headed off on the first Post 16 visit to New York City. After a flight from Manchester to JFK airport the group were ready to see the sights and sounds of New York.
Macmillan Academy has recently made a meaningful community connection to Middlesbrough’s Marks and Spencer, who have gladly accepted an ongoing commitment to provide work experience to Year 12 Hospitality students.
