Superstar Year 10 pupil, Rebekah, celebrates double STEM win

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!”
