The children work in pairs, and the teams considered by the teacher and visiting STEM facilitator to have worked well together, created the best plans and developed the most effective model will be declared the winners. All will receive a certificate for participation, and the winning team will also receive a small prize.

This workshop is offered as a one off enhancement activity, and will also be run as a countywide interschool challenge during the 2017-18 academic year. For further details please call 01634 204995 or email mebp@btinternet.com
