Working either in teams or as individuals, students were asked to respond to a challenging design brief inspired by Britain’s latest sporting passion: cycling. Seven of our year 8 and 9 pupils, with help of the year 11 Prefects have been working hard for the last few weeks to come up the ideas.
They have now entered the competition and will battle it out against other schools across the UK in the hopes of winning the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a day working with a major UK designer or product developer to refine their design concept. Winning designs will form part of a national exhibition run by the Design & Technology Association.
Paige Dean, Shauna Scott and Airann Richards in year 8 have been shortlisted to the final 16 for their project ‘Spa Dew’ a sports drink for cyclists.
