3M Young Innovators Challenge

The three teams that were part of the final for the 3M Young Innovators Challenge have had their presentation evening on Friday 15th June at Loughborough College with Nicky Morgan, Loughborough MP presenting the awards.

The pupils, ranging from Year 7-10, had worked extremely hard to dominate the challenge’s final lineup.

We are pleased to announce that the Space-Tech team, comprising Amber King (Year 10), Ewan Pantling (Year 10), Jess Penlington (Year 9) and Jack Mosley (Year 9) were the overall winners! 

They each won £50 worth of vouchers and £750 of vouchers for school to spend on other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities!

The other two teams were also highly commended for their exceptional work and bagged themselves £25 of vouchers each.

Congratulations to Team Lightbringers (Poppy Maynard-Smith of Year 9 and Katie Carvin and Charlotte Penlington – both of Year 7) and Big Ben Bosses (Amelie Golesworthy and Ethan Pantling of Year 10 and Isaac Mwenya and Abbie Palmer of Year 7) for achieving such excellent results!

The competition has been really exciting to be part of this year and our three teams have developed a close, but friendly, rivalry (thanks in no small part to the number of siblings across the teams!)

We now look forward to the chance to defend our trophy in 2019!
