I am delighted to report that four Year 10 pupils have been successful in being shortlisted for this years Northern Ireland Young Engineers Leaders Award. Over the past few months Grace, Kaleisha, Jodie and Emily have worked hard on producing their own innovative designs where they had to find problems an engineered solution could solve. Grace produced a design that would help an elderly person getting into and out of a bath. Jodie focused on producing a game for those who are visually impaired. Emily produced a flexible extension plug and Kaleisha produced a walking stick for those with dementia that could track their movements.
Alongside their annotated drawings she wrote an accompanying letter to persuade engineers to choose her design to build. Their designs were judged but engineers and have now been shortlisted for an exhibition which will take place at the University of Ulster on June 20th. This exhibition is open to the public and you have the opportunity to view our pupils work.
Grace Ralph – Judges’ Highly Commended
Emily Morton – Distinction-Shortlisted
Jodie Doherty – Distinction-Shortlisted
Kaleisha Mc Causland – Distinction-Shortlisted
The future is bright for these super young engineers. Well done! Mr Mc Devitt.
