Since January 2019 13 students (in two teams) have been taking part in an extra-curricular STEM based project which has seen them work hard to devise their fantastic Eco-Based projects. The projects were to re-design their School as an Island in the most economical and ecological way.
They have worked with the support from two Industry Mentors from Micronclean in Louth, and presented their projects on the 3rd May to a panel of Industry experts at the SPARKS festival held at Lincoln Cathedral. The project required the students to use their Maths, Science and Art skills as well as carry out research into new areas, such as engineering, environmental developments, climate and transport.
The students met weekly in school at lunchtime and in their own time at weekends and through the Easter break to produce two outstanding projects. All of the students were awarded with Bronze level Industrial Cadet Certificates.
Team Dracos Scientia were awarded the Best Teamwork Cup for their School on an Island off the African coast. The Industry Assessors told the team that they were impressed with the Island and it’s features, but had been captivated by the clear teamwork demonstrated in the presentation.
Team Calseej were awarded the Best Overall Cup with a unanimous vote from the panel. The Assessors told the team simply that their School on an Island off Norway was “Outstanding”.
The teams enjoyed time at the SPARKS festival where there were many displays from the Forces, Industry and Education to entertain and amaze them. Mrs Ross, Miss Vinter, Mark Exton (Micronclean) and Ian Carlton (Micronclean) were all super impressed witht eh students over the 12 weeks and on their big day. They are all definitely stars for the future.
Students to be commended:
