The Science Department takes on the Faraday Challenge!

On Tuesday 30 September six S1 pupils; Matthew Leitch, Jodie Connor, Lyle Hopkins, Rory La Trobe, Stephanie Smith and Robert Byers, took part in and won the Faraday Challenge.  The Faraday Challenge is a UK-wide challenge (282 teams at 47 different locations) created by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and held at a secret location (Kinross High School). IET Faraday Challenge Days give pupils the opportunity to research, design and make prototype solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems.  At each event, teams compete to win a prize for themselves and a trophy for their school.  Queen Anne High School came out clear winners against six other local school teams.  The top three scoring teams in the UK will then enter the finals in London, which we very much hope to be part of.

The challenge this year involved pupils designing lighting beacons, which can be placed on roads to help improve travel for cyclists.  This gave the pupils a great opportunity to use 3D printers and try their hand at electronics.  All pupils worked hard and with great enthusiasm.

Well done to all who took part!
