Members of VINCI Construction UK changed their careers for a day by becoming VINCI’s in house ‘Dragons’.
Local primary school children were given a brief to design a new eco-friendly form of transport whilst also utilising a shipping container. The challenge was to encourage decision making, in which a virtual company is created with managing director, marketing manager and designer to devise, develop and create a brand identity for their product.
From ‘Bolt Bikes’ to H20 Go!’ children came up with weird and wonderful transportation ideas and truly innovative solutions.
Carol Vella, Snr Economic Development Officer, Cheshire West and Chester Council said: “Praise to all for the enthusiasm and commitment to their roles as ‘dragons’ and great to have two members of your team who are fabulous examples of Ellesmere Port grown talent, I look forward to the High School session in a week of two.”
The event was organised by Make It! who set up initiatives with local councils to inspire young children into the world of manufacturing.
