THE new Chester campus at West Cheshire College played host to more than 200 residents and their families as they enjoyed a fun-filled day of interactive activities as well as a look behind the scenes at the college’s latest state-of-the-art facilities.
Attendees on the day took the opportunity to get involved with a variety of activities set up by college staff.
These included literacy teacher Wendy Amner’s balloon car racing, programme leader for construction Colin Wilson’s stencilling and rag rolling, and engineering, motor vehicle and logistics tutor Clive Herbert’s demonstration into building an electronic circuit.
Chester radio station, Dee Radio 106.3, broadcasted live throughout the day as visitors also got involved with hands-on exhibitions and experiments organised by teams from Techniquest Science and Discovery Centre in Wrexham and Catalyst in Widnes.
In addition, families also took part in model train rides, face painting, fingerprinting, and programming and controlling robots.
Principal Sara Mogel said: “We invited the local community to join us for a look behind the scenes at the new campus as a thank you for their support in the development of the college.”
