Budding engineers design for the James Webb Space Telescope
10 February 2020 | Darren Smith
Six year 8 students spent the day at Northallerton School taking part in the Faraday Engineering Challenge, organised by the Institute of Engineering and Technology. The six students were chosen for their enthusiasm and passion for science. They competed against five other teams, from four other schools. They designed and built a prototype machine for the James Webb Space Telescope, but were narrowly beaten by the team from Bedale on the day.
Mr Read, who accompanied the team to Northallerton said: “All six students grew into the day and got really hands-on with designing and then building their machine. They presented their final idea brilliantly and got a lot out of the whole experience.”
