Talented pupils from Rastrick High School are one step closer to engineering a victory after winning a place at the finals of a top UK competition.
An idea by Rebecca Roberts, Louisa Page, Charlotte Town, Bethany Sykes, Rachel Bridge, and Heather Davies saw them land a place in the National Science + Engineering Competition.
Their eco-house creation looks into various aspects of recycling.
The group will now go head-to-head with students from across the country in an attempt to claim the top prize.
Rebecca said: “The National Science + Engineering Competition has taken me on an amazing journey and I’ve definitely got my sights set on the big prize whilst at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham next March.
“The best and most important discoveries and inventions are down to science and engineering, and this contest has helped me to realise that I want to be a part of that in the future.”
Imran Khan, chief executive of the British Science Association, which runs the National Science + Engineering Competition, said: “This project really caught our imagination and we hope that it inspires other young people to enter the competition.
“We need to nurture a new generation of bright sparks, and the Competition offers a great incentive to get youngsters experimenting and having fun with science and engineering.”
