Budding scientists win regional heat

Enterprising young scientists from Helston School showed off their prowess in science and technology by winning the regional heats of a national competition.

The Subsea UK STEM Challenge sees teams of students compete in a design-and-make challenge for the marine industry.

A team of Year 9 students won the South West heats of the new initiative, with their robot named Marine Cable.

Helston School teacher, James Allen, said: “It was inspirational day, the students threw themselves in to the challenge fully, and from a personal point of view it was great to see so many young people work for nearly a whole day at a problem with very little direction.”

The pupils will travel to Subsea UK’s Global Centre of Excellence in Aberdeen to take part in the national final.
