Wed 12th Jun 2019 : Top Awards for Mead Pupils in National Engineering Competition
We are very proud to announce that two of our pupils have been awarded with top places for their entries in a national engineering competition and shortlisted for a public exhibition out of thousands of entries.
You may recall the challenge our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) Club was set back in the Autumn term. As part of the Primary Engineering Leaders Award, the club members were asked to produce a plan for a new product, item or concept that they would create if they were an engineer to help the world become a better place.
Two of our Year 4 pupils entries were awarded 'Judges Highly Commended' in the competition, which is a huge achievement as there were a staggering 3,361 entries in total this year. Their entries were displayed along with the other shortlisted entries at the first Primary and Secondary Engineer Leaders Award at Canterbury Christ Church University this week.
The pupils attended the event with their families and were thrilled to see their work on display.
Mrs Gemma Wilson, Head of STEAM at The Mead said, "STEAM club was so enthusiastic about this challenge and I'm very proud that two of our pupils' entries were shortlisted for the exhibition out of so many. It is such a fantastic achievement and they should be enormously proud of themselves too."
The Award, a national annual competition run by global engineering companies and leading universities, was set up to encourage innovative thinking and problem-finding, develop links between the industry and education and as a means of engineers inspiring children (and, according to the Leaders Award organisers, often the children inspire the engineers too!).
