Twelve Gifted and Talented Year 8/9s have been invited to participate from Ravens Wood in the Bromley Science and Technology Challenge Day, held at the University of Greenwich. Working together in mixed school teams of four, they undertake practical activities that increase their awareness of the application of science.
Each activity is designed to develop skills that will be needed in the workplace, with marks being awarded for planning, team work and the finished product.
The teams will compete in three activities: the Vehicle Challenge, the E-Fit Challenge and the Robotics Challenge.
The overall winning teams from each Challenge Day progress to a regional final which will be held at the University of Cambridge.
Students will be selected over the coming weeks and the successful students will have their names posted here.
