Highbridge maths students become project managers for a day!

Pupils at Highbridge's King Alfred School have been picking up project management expertise during a unique series of maths classes this week.

The Year 7 pupils were set the challenge of designing and costing a garage for a motorbike.

The project tested the students on the functional elements of their maths curriculum.

"Within each team, students were given roles of Project Manager, Architect, Researcher and Costing Manager," the school's Simon Aylward told

"They had to get measurements, the costs of materials, plan the design and size of the garage, and create models of their project before finally presenting it to others. They really enjoyed the experience."

The finished designs ranged from budget versions, to environmentally friendly ones and upmarket, deluxe garages.
