Bronze Crest Award

By on Dec 12, 2019 in Blog |

The Bronze Crest Award introduces students to project work empowering them to work like real scientists, technologists, engineers or mathematicians. Students choose their own topic and methodologies, giving them complete freedom over their work.

Students work independently or in groups to plan and run a project addressing a real-world STEM problem. 

We have a group of students at the moment enrolled on the Bronze Crest Award on a Wednesday afterschool with Ms Hall. The students are currently in the making stage of their project. The students are completing a variety of STEM based projects which include edible bath bombs, designing and creating their own fizzy drinks and investigating medical conditions. One student in particular has completed additional work in his own time to create this car. He is looking at how increasing the aerodynamics of the outer body can increase the speed of a low powered vehicle.
