32 Pins101 Followers
Virtual field trips are running to Auckland’s Waterview Connection tunnel project. New Zealand school students can learn more about this large scale roading project designed to complete Auckland's Western Ring Route. Keep up with progress by Alice the Tunnel Boring Machine. Here are links to supporting material, including videos and images from the projects.

Year 10 students will find out about engineering careers through learning experiences based around New Zealand’s most complicated roading project, the Waterview Connection. The educational initiative is called The Waterview Connection: A Learning Pathways Challenge. The Learning Pathway Challenge encourages secondary students from invited schools to learn how engineers at Waterview go about their work. School-based learning and visits lead to a challenge event for students on September 4.
