Trip to Amazon Fulfilment Centre
During March a group of GCSE Computer Science and Technology pupils were the first high school group to tour the Amazon Fulfilment Centre in Altrincham.
During the tour pupils were able to experience the running of the robotics technology, which is involved in the management and distribution of products from Amazon. They were taught about what happens from when an order is placed, through to the packaging and labelling of the products.
As the first high school to tour the facility, our pupils were lucky enough to be able to name two of the robots. The pupils really enjoyed the experience. It was extremely valuable to learn how a large international company runs and heavily relies on technology and computing on a day to day level.
