QEHS Team Win Engineering Competition!
Two teams from QEHS attended the Gen Y Rail engineering competition at the Hancock museum in Newcastle. The event aimed to help inspire young people to look for a future in the rail industry. In total there were 23 teams from 11 different schools and colleges from around the north east.
Students competed with other teams developing solutions to engineering challenges faced by the industry and presented to a Dragons' Den style panel of judges.
The QEHS Year 13 boys team form won the competition and will now travel to the national finals on the 25th June At Network Rail's Westwood training facility, Coventry. The QEHS girls team from Years 9, 10 and 12 came a very respectable 6th and also gained a lot from the day.
Students also received a Bronze Crest Discovery award for competing in the competition. CREST is a UK award scheme recognising success, building skills and demonstrating personal achievement in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) project work.
Well done to: Callum, Hugh, Ben, Calum, Harry, Ewan, Amy, Chloe, Hannah, Lucy, Tabitha and Elizabeth.
