Trinity Pupils Go Forth

Pupils from Trinity Academy visited the Queensferry Crossing Contact and Education Centre for an informative tour of Scotland’s largest infrastructure project.

The opportunity gave them a chance to put what they’d learned in school into context and be inspired about the career opportunities within the STEM sector.

The team are participating in the first Go Forth competition later this year which aims to raise the profile of Engineering.
