Double success for Camp Hill School for Girls in national engineering competition.
Two teams from King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls achieved recognition in the Talent 2030 National Engineering Competition for Girls.
Both teams were invited to exhibit their solutions to a modern day engineering problem at the Big Bang Fair at the NEC Saturday 18 March as they had been shortlisted by the competition judges to be in the final 15 teams in their respective age groups.
YEAR 9 TEAM YEAR 10 TEAM
The year 9 team, competing in the 11-14 age group, was made up of team members Bariah Azhar, Shreya Shyam, Menna Moustafa, Maryam Alatmane and Salihah Ayub. Their solution was an innovative kiln idea designed to desalinate water. After a very close judging process, the team were placed 3rd nationally in their age group out of over 700 participants.
The year 10 team, competing in the 15-16 age group, was made up of team members Shivika Sharma, Sumayyah Amin, Ria Bacharach, Eleanor Barrell and Spardha Raut. Their solution was an equally innovative method for electricity generation using waste water. In their age category, the judges considered their solution to be the best in the country and they were awarded the 1st prize of £1000.
All ten of the girls were there at the end to collect their awards and certificates from Marty Jopson, resident scientist on BBC One programme The One Show.
