Global Challenge Design Competition Winners

10 maart 2016

This term Key Stage 3 and Year 12 students are joining forces to compete in the Nord Anglia Global Challenge. This year the challenge is to design and build a Rube Goldberg machine, a complicated contraption that performs a simple task.

To generate interest and gather ideas, we began the challenge with a design contest open to all students in Key Stage 3. Students worked on their designs in PSHE lessons and in form time. They had strict criteria to meet but despite this, the standard of entries was fantastic and the Year 12 judges had a hard task to pick a winner.

After much deliberation the winning designs were chosen for a combination of the creativity of the design ideas and the quality of the illustration of the machine. Congratulations to Haein Jo and Jihu Lee from 7B, Natarsha Yan and Jade Miller from 8I and Jack Crowsley and Laerke Christiansen from 9I. The winners met to receive their prize, enjoyed a pizza lunch and were presented certificates by Mr Lancaster.   

The next stage is the building of the machine which will begin this week. Please support us by sending in your recyclable waste (our primary building material), disused toys or appliances that we could incorporate into our machine. Alternatively you can share any creative ideas of your own with Mr Hill via email.  

We will be updating the blog with details of our evolving machine as the build progresses.
