Sharing best practice in outreach: school design challenge
An activity for local schools to develop pupils’ problem solving skills. Schools enter one or more teams of 4-6 pupils, who are challenged to design and make a model to a brief. The challenge is undertaken in school on a weekly basis with students from University engineering departments assisting the teacher during the session. At the end all participants take part in a final event at the university which involves judging the models and prize giving.
