North East STEM Tournament

Students were brilliant, representing King Edward’s at the North East STEM tournament on Friday 22 March. Up against schools from across the area from Hexham to Middlesborough and Durham – in total 24 teams competed.

Students were given a set of materials and had to problem solve and think on their feet to respond to the project brief. Teams designed and built a working crane, capable of picking up and moving nuclear waste. 

Both of our teams, one year 9 and and year 12, worked fantastically well and it culminated in the Year 12’s winning the “advanced” category.
