Heavy machinery excursion with Preston Hire

Students from Creator Academy's FLL and FLL Junior teams experienced real-life heavy construction machinery, generously provided by Preston Hire.

Students learned about a range of equipment, from 'spider' cranes that can fold small enough to enter an elevator, to 16-ton monsters that allow workers to access hard-to-reach areas.

Students each had the opportunity to remotely operate a 10-metre high scissor lift, and everyone received a Supercars Monopoly set, featuring the Preston Hire V8 Holden on the box.

We are incredibly grateful of the support we received from Preston Hire, and we cannot wait to see how this excursion helps evolve our student projects for FIRST LEGO League 2019!
