Severndale entered a team of four students into the Schools Science Competition which although a first entry for us as a school; entered its 5th year of the annual competition this year. The competition was open to teams of students aged 11-18.
The student team, named ‘Robotic Inclusion’ came up with an innovative solution to good health and well-being. They wanted to invent a robot called ‘MAAC’ to help people by telling jokes, teaching lessons, planting seeds, transforming into something to keep them happy and would also be able to test peoples health and give medication if they are ill. They presented their ideas in a video and were chosen from over 150 teams to take part in the final of seven teams which took place on 27th March at The Imperial College, London.
The VIP judging panel consisted of Helen Sharman, Professor Lord Robert Winston, Renee Watson, Dr Simon Foster and Dr Jess Wade.
The four students travelled down to London for the event and were not fazed by the size or grandeur of the event or famous faces around them. They stood up and presented their project to a theatre full of people and spoke proudly about what they had done and what they would like to achieve.
Severndale gained a Highly Commended award from the Judges and we are all immensely proud of their achievement. Please see the link below.
