On the 14th of March two groups of S2 pupils attended the Go4Set Engineering Development Trust Competition at Dumfries House. For 10 weeks, both groups worked tirelessly on their STEM projects, producing a professional report and model, which they presented to their assessors on the competition day. Rachel Byrne, Jenna Shelley, Rosie Milne and Kathleen Milne created a simulation of a novel system that locates books using radio-frequency identification. Ellie Cook, Emma Taylor, Poppy Nicolson, Amy Nixon, Rosie Rossi and Jake Murray developed a new recycling system for use in schools based on a method used in Singapore. The recycling group in particular wowed the judges and they managed to score the ‘Outstanding Teamwork Award’!
