Young Engineers @ Derby University

Eight students, three from year 10 and six from year 12,were at Derby University last week, taking part in the Young Engineers and Scientists event. Numerous schools from across the City took part in a series of challenges that included building a lunar lander.

 

The day drew to a close with the award ceremony seeing Chellaston ‘mop up’. The students won in every category bar one including the year 9 and 10 group, the post 16 group, most enthusiastic student (Gugu) and the innovation award.

 

To say the students are proud as punch is an understatement. They returned to school grinning from ear to ear, proud of their achievements.

 

Well done everyone and thank you to Mr Yeoman for arranging and supporting this event.
