STEM Virtual Field Trip
Today our students took a virtual field trip via Facetime to TRIPAQ manufacturing. The company manufactures a wide range of custom package products. EY teacher, Mrs. Johnston’s sister, Mrs. Liddle, works for TRIPAQ, and she hosted our trip through the processes of package design, package graphics, and the mass production of packaging solutions for many products. This experience falls right in line with our current design engineering project on designing plant packages. Our next step will be for our students to design and create plans with specifications for a plant package carrying cases. They will send their plans to TRIPAQ, who in turn will use the plans to create packages and ship them to us for assembly. A big thanks to Mrs. Liddle, Mrs. Johnston, and all involved at TRIPAQ who took time out of their busy day to make this tour possible. Cool stuff! Stay tuned.
