Year 10 pupil and budding STEM enthusiast, Rebekah Hald, entered two competitions over the summer, and we are delighted to announce that she has been successful in being selected as a winner of both. Rebekah has won some incredible prizes for herself and the school;
I also entered the Big Bang Explore: My Idea Challenge. I developed my ideas on food waste further and submitted a video presentation as part of the challenge to demonstrate creativity and clear real-world application and benefits. Last week it was confirmed that I had been selected as one of the winners of the competition, winning Amazon vouchers for myself and a drone for our school!”
“In June 2020 I entered the Shell Bright Ideas Challenge. The challenge was to examine the energy problems facing a city in 2050 and devise a bright idea as a solution. My Bright Idea was the development of household Smart-Bins and an app to log food waste contributions for the production of biogas-generated energy. In tackling this energy problem, my solution could help to solve the huge problem of food waste, reduce greenhouse gases and make us a greener country. I was selected as the Yorkshire and Humber competition winner and have won a certificate, a goody bag and a £2,500 prize for our school to spend on STEM!
Mr Adams, Assistant Head (Academic) said:
“We are so proud of Rebekah and her fantastic achievements. She is so passionate about STEM and is keen for other students to share in her love of these subjects. I am sure the drone and the prize money for school will support her in her goal for all students to be even more amazed and enthused about STEM subjects. I know I am already excited about the drone arriving!”
