Students from Link 2 and 3 have recently attended a scrapheap challenge event at Inspire to Learn as part of their careers curriculum.
They first learnt all about the history of engineering and sustainable energy. Then they needed to create a sustainable product for our everyday life. Students soon got to work sharing ideas and demonstrating teamwork skills.
They used recycled products to create their prototype. It was fantastic to see the students take the lead and take pride in their engineering. Students created a solar panelled camper van and a solar panelled wheel chair lift to help students around Summerhill.
