Four P7 pupils entered the local heat of the Young Engineers Competition. Over a few months under the careful guidance of Mrs Calway a group of pupils built an electric car from wood, cardboard, batteries and wire. They then designed a theme for decorating their car and wrote a detailed report on their planning and design.
Lewis, Lucas, Samantha and Emily went to St Modan’s to test their car against five other teams from neighbouring schools. The cars were tested to see if they could run in a straight line and get up various gradients on a ramp. They were also questioned in depth about their designs.
Samantha and Emily won best design and best car overall! Congratulations on a well deserved win girls and to the boys who also made us proud.
