Wizzybug work experience at Designability’s workshop

Students from Three Ways School in Bath have been learning more about Wizzybug and some of the engineering processes involved.

Three Ways is a Special School in Bath and the students spent four days at our workshop during the summer.

Helping to refurbish Wizzybugs for our loan scheme, they learned to assemble parts and create components using specialist equipment under the supervision of Workshop Manager Martin Rouse.

Martin said, “It was a pleasure to welcome Three Ways students to the workshop, working alongside our dedicated team of designers and engineers. Designability’s core work is working with and for disabled people, so it was fantastic to allow these students an opportunity to understand more about the work we do and for them to gain hands on experience in a workshop environment.”

Lucy Beattie, Fundraising, Marketing and Development Manager at Three Ways School, said, “Our students thoroughly enjoyed their time at the Designability workshop and gained some fantastic real-world experience of engineering. We would like to thank the team at Designability for the opportunity.”
