Silver Award in the Skills Competition – STEM Schools Challenge

Congratulations to Elain and Tili from Year 7 who won the Silver award in the skills competition Wales final in the Stem Schools Challenge in Builth Wells this week. The competition was open to all schools in Wales. They had to design and make a balloon powered car to complete a 5 metre length. The total cost of the car had to be no more than £10 for all materials.

The car could be any size and shape and made of any materials, but all parts had to be made by the team, including wheels, axles, and body. The girls had 2 hrs to build their car, half an hour to test it and 1 hour to complete the challenge. Good teamwork was key to their success. A huge congratulations to them both.
