Ivanhoe Students Excel in STEM Competition

A number of our Year 8 and 9 students have been involved in a range of competitions as part of the 3M Young Innovators Challenge. Impressively we have had 6 teams put forward to the finals and we now wait with baited breath to see if we can build on our successes from past years and bring home any more awards.

As part of the Science Detectives competition, which we reported on back in February, 4 teams of students went to the 3M head office in Loughborough to present the findings of their investigations. Well done to Jack Roe, Shannon Hunt, Leah Ibbs, Matthew Denman, Sophie Startsmore, Mhairi Mcgrath, Keira Pagett, Alice Hall and Amelia Bithell, who make up the Ivanhoe Crime Busters and the Ivanhoe Investigators who made it through to the final.


As part of the Eco Tech Challenge students were asked to design and construct a functioning item of furniture for a child using only recycled or sustainable materials. Judges were looking for strong evidence of background research, innovation in recycled
material use, and design development. Well done to Darci Hunt, Ruby Webster, Rebecca Noon, Ellen Bailey and Kate Yeomans who made it through to the finals in the Puppet Muppets Team and the Ivanhoe Entrepreneurs.

 

Finally, The Super Food Challenge asks students to design and make a healthy snack product strongly reflecting the ingredients and food culture of a chosen country. Judges were looking for nutritional awareness, knowledge of scientific processes involved in the product’s production – and something that looks and tastes great! Well done to Rebecca Noon, Rebecca Tomlinson, Kate Yeomans, Sadie Longhurst, Seth Jager, Ed Jager, and Morgan Rowland , who made it to the final as the Ricchezza Biscotti Team and the Mexican Snack Pack Team.

 


The standard of all the teams that entered was of such a high standard that they have already received a British Science Association CREST Bronze Award.
