Through a very difficult year for everyone, the Gloucestershire K’Nex Challenge has again been a huge success. Despite various lockdowns and restrictions, we have successfully delivered 93 workshops in over 80 primary schools across Gloucestershire, culminating in a virtual final that was held on 13th July.
Young engineers from across the county were tasked with designing and building a castle, with mechanisms and defences, and a winning team from each school were then tasked with writing a presentation for the judges. Judges from Reinishaw plc had the unenviable task of trying to pick the winners from all the fantastic entries that we received. Schools were then invited to join our celebration event where the winners were announced.
Congratulations to Max and Zac from Kemble Primary School for their winning entry and also to Jack and Maggie from English Bicknor C of E, who were runners up. The judges were very impressed with the creativity shown and the ingenious defences that the winning models deployed.
