Students top the SHELL Bright Ideas Challenge!

Two teams of students have won categories in this year's SHELL Bright Ideas Challenge, as part of the school's focus on STEM activities! 

What will cities look like in 2050? How will they be powered to be vibrant, healthy and clean places to live? That’s the question put to students aged 11-14 by The Bright Ideas Challenge, Shell’s cross-curricular schools’ competition. The competition invited young people to use their creativity, problem solving, teamwork and STEM skills to devise innovative solutions that could power cities of the future.

Team Amicis Inventio has been announced as a Regional Winner of The Bright Ideas Challenge for their compelling response to the Shell challenge!

As a Regional Winner, the students have won £1500 for the school, cash vouchers for themselves and a funded VIP London experience at Make the Future Live 2018, Shell’s festival of ideas and innovation, on Thursday 5 July and Friday 6 July, 2018!

In addition to catching the action with all the exciting hands on activities, science shows and Shell Eco-marathon, as winners the students will get funded travel to the festival, accommodation for up to two nights and be given access to range of exclusive VIP experiences in London.

Elsewhere, Team Phoenix Rising has been selected by the judges as Talented Presenters as part of the Ones to Watch prizes celebrating the Year of Engineering. As a Ones to Watch winner, the school has won an extra £750 to boost our STEM learning! Watch the Video.

Well done to the winners and all students who took part!
