School pupils won an exciting and unique opportunity to visit the construction site of the new Worcestershire Parkway train station.
The winning students from Parkside Middle School, Bromsgrove, beat 37 other schools from the county in the Primary STEM Challenge competition.
As part of their prize, the budding engineers of the future visited the construction site of the new station on Monday 8th July.
The visit included a presentation from Tom Delaney, Contracts Project Manager, and Marrick Murphy, Worcestershire Parkway’s Site Manager. The students learned about what happens during the planning and construction phases of this major project; one of Worcestershire’s biggest and most impressive infrastructure schemes to date.
At the Primary STEM Challenge final in March, the teams were challenged to build a model of a train station out of the well-known K’Nex toy construction kits – a theme specifically chosen to celebrate the construction of the Worcestershire Parkway train station which is due to open to the public later this year.
