RISK IT CHALLENGE – STUDENTS TAKE PART IN COUNTY FINAL!

After a successful day of researching, designing and building a device for use at sea which was held at school on 28th June, the successful team competed in the County Final on 11th July which was held at the Historic Dockyard at Chatham.

The format was similar to the school challenge with the design remit of a device that would help solve a problem associated with marine pollution.

The Stocky team of Evie, Tegan and Eleanor worked hard all day on a fantastic idea to help clean the oceans of crude oil spilt from oil tankers. They learnt about building an electronic circuit, researching the problems of crude oil, operating an electric drill safely, moulding a sheet of aluminium into a semi-circle and preparing a presentation.

The girls worked hard all day and showed great team spirit as well as determination to overcome difficulties in construction of their prototype.

There were 6 other schools in the final and we were not lucky enough to win, however the Stocky team were great ambassadors for our school and should be very proud of the way that they worked through the challenge.
