Bury St Edmunds students win first place in heat of engineering contest
A team of six students from Bury St Edmunds claimed first place in the local heat of the Institute of Engineering’s national Faraday competition.
The competition saw students from the Bury All-Through Trust’s Horringer Court Campus design and build solutions to real life engineering problems, alongside coding, using the recently launched BBC Microbits.
Joe Bradfield, Imogen Chorlton, Euan Grant, Rebecca Morley, Madison Payne and Stella Wilkinson were credited with their team working skills and confident presentation of their project at the competition, which was held at Stowupland High School.
The trust is due to open a STEM Academy in September 2019.
