A GROUP of Morpeth pupils discovered the key building blocks to a career in engineering.

The Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) North East, assisted by A1+, took its 13metre scaled model cable-stayed bridge to Chantry Middle School and Technology College, where almost 150 students from both Chantry and Newminster middle schools worked to assemble the structure.

The bridge is used to give the students an insight into an civil engineering and allows them direct contact with professionals to help them understand more about the industry.
