Did you know that Scunthorpe Steel was used to build Wembley Stadium?

We will investigate a range of structures that have been made using steel, such as Wembley Stadium, The Sydney Opera House and rail tracks all around the world. Also, as part of this topic we will listen to a guest speaker, a former steelworker who will talk about his life on the steelworks and the many exciting products he helped to produce.
