Energy Challenge

Enery challenge

Last week 41 Year 8 students attended the Energy Challenge event in the hall.

Energy-challenge-1After looking at questions such as ‘What is engineering?’ and ‘Why is an increasing human population a problem’; they began the practical task of working in teams to make and test solar powered cars. At the end of the day two races were held; the accuracy race where their cars had to stop as close to the line as possible and the speed race to see whose car could make it across the hall first. All teams worked hard together, testing their cars and making adjustments to try to claim the prizes.

The winning teams were ‘No Name‘ consisting of Ellie, Dani, Shereen, Hedye and Hrishika from 8-7 and ‘Bob the Builder‘ consisting of Arya, Sara, Imaan and Eisha from 8-1, with their car ‘Winner’.
