We have come as ‘Highly Commended’ in a STEM club competition for the activity we were running in the lead up to National STEM Clubs Week. Despite the large numbers of high quality submissions the judges were most impressed with our entry, and we are to receive a certificate acknowledging our achievement.

See below the entry from our STEM club for the STEM club week competition:

Initially, the students designed their moulds on computers using a CAD program. Their designs were then laser-cut in two layers which students sanded down and then built up into a former. The following week students created their moulds using the vacuum-former and then melted and poured their chocolate.

Well done to the girls and staff who helped.
