STEM Competition

Four of our most talented pupils took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) competition in the last week of half term.

 Four of our most talented pupils took part in a STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) competition in the last week of half term. The pupils were selected by subject teachers for their talents in STEM subjects and the team was made up of Antonia Willoughby, William Hannigan, Lucy Fisher (all Year 11) and Lucy Birchall (Year 10). The pupils were put through their paces in an Apprentice style activity to produce the most creative and innovative health related app they could. In a limited amount of time the pupils put forward an outstanding entry for the school, to be entered into a nationwide competition created by Astellas, a pharmaceutical company dedicated to finding innovative ways to support people across the world to live healthier lives. Shortlisting will be announced on the 5th of November. The top three teams will go down to London at the end of November to pitch their ideas and fight for the top spot. The winning entry will not only get STEM funding for the school and individual prizes for the participants, but their app will be created and be available for download in the near future. Fingers crossed for our fantastic four!
