 Larne Grammar Pupils visit Kilwaughter Minerals

Pupils from Larne Grammar School recently had the opportunity to learn about local firm, Kilwaughter Minerals which produces innovative, high quality products for the construction and agriculture sectors.  The tour kicked off the start of the autumn engagement activities planned under Science Summer School, an initiative of which Kilwaughter Minerals are the headline sponsor.


The tour was organised through the Manufacturing Task Force as part of Science Summer School, a STEAM Initiative that is being hosted in Northern Ireland for the second time, at The Braid, Ballymena in January 2023.  Council are committed to developing skills in the borough and exploring new initiatives with local employers to enable a seamless transfer from education into work.


During the visit, the students had the opportunity to learn more about what makes a major manufacturing company work.  The tour of the manufacturing plant included an insight into product development, R&D, business development, quality assessment and quarrying.
