Two pupils from Churchill Community College have been working with Engineering Technicians at TyneMet College to complete their final A Level Product Design project.

The pupils needed specialist machinery, tools and resources to turn their drawings into actual products and asked TyneMet for help.

The pupils, Daniel Bilham and Thomas Hill, along with a Technician from Churchill Community College, came to use one of the fully equipped Engineering workshops at TyneMet College on Thursday mornings, to work on their final pieces.

They completed their designed products which were a scooter jack and a BMX mobile grinder just after the Easter holidays.

A qualified Engineering Technician from TyneMet helped the students to use the specialist machinery and provide them with the materials they needed which included Ibeams and steel tubing.

Gary Eiles, Engineering Teacher, TyneMet College said:

“The Engineering Department here at TyneMet is thrilled to have been able to help these pupils to complete their designs and help to manufacture their finished products.

“Our specialist engineering workshops are fully equipped with the most up-to-date industry standard machinery; these are resources which would not normally be found in a school for pupils to use.”
