Lancaster University STEM Schools Challenge
As part of National Science Engineering Week, and to celebrate Lancaster University's 50th anniversary, 160 students from across the region came to Lancaster on Wednesday 19th March to compete in a Science Technology Engineering and Maths Schools Challenge.
Teams from Lancaster Girls' Grammar School, Ripley St Thomas, Morecambe High, Walney, Lancaster Royal Grammar School, Kirkbie Kendal, Queen Katherine, Dallam, Stonyhurst and Heysham High were split into teams of four to compete in four challenges.
Students were put to the test making fuel cells to power motors, building hologram-like projection stages using iPads, designing and firing bottle-rockets and making precision measurements.
The winning team, from Lancaster Girls' Grammar School, were presented with the Simon Martindale shield, named in memory of a local science teacher from Morecambe High school, and £250 worth of new library books for the school.
