4SK had the opportunity to visit BOC Gas Ltd. During the trip we were lucky enough to be able to look around the site and have live demonstrations. The day was really informative and we all learnt many new things. The boys were able to use some of their prior knowledge about gases and molecules learnt in science.
The boys were excellent ambassadors for the school, asking relevant questions and showed a real interest. It was good to find out BOC and Esso offer apprenticeships and have excellent graduate training programmes. We look forward to working with BOC more in the future and thank Andy who made the day so interesting.
