Classes 9 and 10 spent Wednesday this week on a trip exploring the innovation trail. This was a series of different venues around Newcastle that traced innovations, inventions and inventors that are linked to the north east from the past up to present day and into the future. We started with George Stephenson and The Rocket and learnt all about him and the wonderfully important invention of the steam locomotive and ended up learning all about the invention of the travel of the future  – the Hyperloop! It was a fun day with lots of local history knowledge gained!
