National Engineering Competition double

May 16, 2018

St Mary’s continues to produce excellent prize-winning scientists. Three teams of St Mary’s girls took part in the Talent 2030 National Engineering Competition for Girls 2018, their challenge being to use engineering to solve one of the problems that face us in the 21st century. Two of our Year 9 girls took first prize in the 11-14 age category with their system of automated robots designed to clean up oil spills at sea. One of our other Year 9 teams  scooped second place with their project on sustainable living. Both teams went up to the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham on 17th March to present their projects and receive their awards. The winning team received a cheque for £500.
