Y6 - all aboard the Monozukuri Caravan!

The Year 6 children had a fantastic day at Nissan taking part in the Monozukuri Caravan event.

The day began with the children learning about Nissan and a little about Japanese culture.

Then, in pairs, using Lego, the children made a car and then were placed in teams (like a factory production line) to make a Nissan Buddy from Lego. The children each had a certain job to do and needed to build the car as quick as possible. This encouraged the children to work as part of a team.

On the afternoon, the children visited one of the training workshops, where they saw the equipment that is needed to build cars, and they even got the chance to sit a Nissan Infiniti car.

To test their hand-eye co-ordination the children took part in different practical activities, these included using a drill to remove screws, a hammer to remove dents out of steel and seeing how quick they could put pegs into holes. The children also watched a film about a Nissan Juke is made.

The children really enjoyed their day and many now would like to work at Nissan in the future.
