The Year 7 STEM club have recently entered a national STEM competition for 11-14 year olds, run by Learning Aluminium. The challenges were set up to get the pupils to think creatively and put their developing design skills to work. The Year 7 teams were given three aluminium based challenges to choose from; two teams decided to design a one person vehicle for the future – focusing on aluminium in transport and the third team chose to design a garden building for a creative home worker – focusing on aluminium in construction. The teams faced big competition, with over 250 entries representing 40 different schools from around the UK. Unfortunately, our designs were not selected as winners this year, but all three teams received a certificate and are now working on creating a solar paneled car ready for STEM Week in March.
