Chocolate boxes

14 March 2018

Year 9's career day focussed on work using STEM subjects and management skills this week.  The students also designed a chocolate box in groups, to explore the different roles within a business.

The day opened with a speaker from careers organisation Inspired Futures who showed a film of four women working in science.  The students had to work out what jobs the women were doing and what skills were needed for each role.

The students then got into groups to decide how to package their chocolate boxes.  Afterwards each group gave a three minute presentation on their choices.

The winner was "Classix": a classic box of chocs with a twist as it promoted upcycling within the packaging.

All in all, a valuable day learning about transferable skills, leadership and teamwork.  Our thanks to Mrs von Kaufmann for masterminding the day.
