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.
