A Christmas Challenge

As part of a recent science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) event, Year 7 students took part in a festive challenge against 13 other Lincolnshire schools.


Santa’s conveyor belt had broken down and it was up to the students to design one, using limited materials, that would carry cargo (assorted sweets) for 1 metre, dropping the cargo into a sack at the end.


Our students rose to the challenge and created two distinct designs that wowed the judges.


Mrs Baldwin, Careers Coordinator, said: “Although our designs did not win, the judges commended our students on their creativity. It was a great way to work as a team and the event introduced the idea of careers in engineering to our students.”
