National Engineering Competition
‘If You Were an Engineer, What Would You Do?’
This year pupils across Years 4 -11 took part in the ‘If You Were an Engineer, What Would You Do?’ competition. The competition encourages pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK to look at the world around them and find engineered solutions to common problems.
As part of the competition, pupils interviewed engineering professionals, identified a problem and designed a solution to it enabling them to be inspired by engineering professionals and ‘find the engineer they could be’ by designing the future of engineering. Alongside their annotated drawings, all participating students sent in an accompanying letter to persuade engineers to choose their design to build.
Normanton House Sweeps awards
Over 33,000 pupils across the
UK took part, every entry was graded by engineers and educationalists and five of our very own pupils won Maa Shaa ALLAH. This is a huge achievement for the pupils and our school Alhamdulillah.
The winning students were invited to the awards ceremony at The University of Lincoln where they received a winner certificate and a trophy. The rest of the school was invited to the exhibition showcasing Distinction and Distinction Shortlisted entries from the region so the other children saw their own designs up on display too! AN exciting and memorable event and evening.
