Practical Action Off-Grid! Challenge winners

At the end of the summer term all of year 7 were involved in a cross disciplinary project which really tested their geography and science knowledge as well as their research, teamwork, design and communication skills. The project was set in rural Zimbabwe where few villages have access to mains electricity and the pupils were tasked with designing a way to utilise solar cells to improve lives in Gwanda. There was a particular focus on the UN Global Goal of Zero Hunger and all of the imaginative ideas were submitted to the Practical Action Off-Grid! Challenge. We were delighted to discover that Group 15 had won the competition and their prizes have just arrived! Thanks very much to Practical Action for the brilliant books and vouchers that each girl has won, as well as the TTS equipment received by the school. Congratulations to all of the girls for their fabulous work, and especially to Group 15!
