Year 9 students crowned winners of national schools’ science competition
This term, three of our year nine students – Manu, Torin and Marlon – have fought off tough competition from hundreds of schools across the UK to win the school £5,000 and be crowned national winners of Shell’s, The Bright Ideas Challenge.
This cross-curricular schools’ competition invites teams of students to come up with innovative solutions that could one day power our future cities.
By 2070, it’s estimated there will be around 10 billion people on the planet, with demand for energy set to double. Therefore, it is essential that we find new ways to produce more sustainable energy. This year, the Bright Ideas Challenge tasked students to use their STEM knowledge and problem-solving skills to imagine innovative solutions for making future cities clean, efficient, vibrant places to live, work and play.
