Y12 STEM Challenge
15th July 2022
On Tuesday the 12th July a group of our year 12 engineering students were invited to take part in the prestigious Manufacturing group design and make challenge 2022. This year's challenge was to design and make a vehicle that would travel down two cables suspended one metre above the ground powered by gravity.
From the start of the challenge our students were outstanding with their ideas, approach and enthusiasm. When realising that the test track was only going to be available for five minute time slots our students made their own testing rig and this type of foresight was why our students won one of the big prizes of the day.
At the end of the challenge and deliberation of the judges team Great Wyrley were judged to be winners of the innovation and design category and were presented with the prize of a 3D Printer for the school. The students were also given an individual goodie bag.
This is an outstanding example of the hard work and dedication shown by the year 12 Engineering students at Great Wyrley Academy and to top off the day they even had the bragging rites of beating Mr Baker’s Efforts in the challenge. A big well done to the student's involved!
