Solar boat builders

At the end of last term Fyling Hall’s Year 7 accompanied our Year 9 solar boat builders to the Yorkshire Aircraft Museum. Pupils took part in the museum’s “Inspirations” STEM Challenge & Showcase. This huge event sees some 600 pupils enter their GCSE or extra curriculum projects in the core Science, Engineering Maths and Technology disciplines also incorporating sustainability, textiles and resistant materials.

Although our boat didn’t win, but it worked . . . and didn’t sink like some others! And gave the Y7s a chance to witness a variation on the hovercrafts they created in the classroom. A great celebration of the achievements of young people in STEM!
