The event celebrated student success from the 12-week STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) challenge. 

Wellacre’s Year 8 STEM team worked on the 12-week ‘My School is An Island.” They worked alongside assigned industry mentors from Luxfer, who assisted in the practical project work and work-related learning, which also included a workplace visit.

To achieve the Industrial Cadets Bronze Award, students were tasked with writing a report, making a model, filming a presentation and delivering the presentation to a panel of industry experts on their renewable energy project.  

The brief invited them to think of their school as an island and explore issues such as energy use, recycling, water and transport

When the team attended  the University of Liverpool event alongside other Bronze Award teams, they were delighted to also win and receive the Project of the Year Award.

EDT feedback for the team’s work stated:

“The Wellacre Academy team produced a detailed report showing off their project management skills, sound understanding of the task and detailed analysis of their final ideas. The group also showed great teamwork that was reflected in the quality and activities undertaken to complete their project.”

Huge congratulations to our STEM innovators - Harry, Laurence, Alfie, Charlie, Serge and Riley.

Miss Ward, Teacher of Science, said:

“The STEM group worked incredibly hard on their project demonstrating teamwork, resilience and aspiration. They showed excellent commitment to a project by writing their report weekly and they were very professional when working with their mentors. By the end of the project they were able to speak confidently to industry experts and to other schools at the University of Liverpool about their work.”
