This term the physics department at AGGS publicised the Talent 2030’s National Engineering Competition for Girls, targeting students from years 9, 10 and 12. The competition invites students to solve the major challenges of the 21st century, to get creative, get thinking and most of all – have fun!
The objective of this competition was to identify and provide possible solutions for some of the challenges of the 21st century
We were really pleased with the phenomenal interest in this competition with 97 girls from AGGS submitting an entry about a diverse range of topics which included:
Dealing with climate change
Public transport safety
The declining bee population
On 17th March 2018 a shortlisted group were invited to showcase their entries at the Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham as their entry was of particular interest to the judges. Students were given the opportunity to showcase their competition projects to the visitors of the fair.
