On Wednesday, Year 10 and 11 had the chance to visit Edor Electronics, a multinational company leader in research, development and production of automotive industry parts such as ignition coils, electronic control units for controlling combustion and advanced electric system for hybrid applications.
Students started the excursion by attending a presentation made by the head of external relations and the head of quality control where they got the general idea of the company and how the company cares about environmental preservation and respect.
After this they moved through different production lines, where starting from raw materials, it was possible to obtain the final product ready to be sold to clients. On that step, they had the opportunity to ask questions and get detailed answers.
This field trip was organized by the Secondary Science Department, to provide students a first-hand information regarding application of instrumentation and control in process industry, involving them in a real world experience and to enable them to appreciate the relevance and importance of what they learn in the classroom.
