Sir John Talbot’s School Year 8 students have been busy taking part in the STEM MNA Challenge. The competition has helped students to develop their STEM skills, while providing a greater insight into the potential career opportunities available in industry. Students were provided with a professional mentor Steven Owen from Paveaway’s, who supported throughout the project along with their Design and Technology Teacher, Mrs Richmond. Students were tasked with developing a sustainable product, which would support the disadvantaged. They created a fully working and professional height adjustable, portable walking frame with 360 degree manoeuvrability. After presenting to seven different judges, students were awarded Best Entrepreneurial Team at the 2019 STEM MNA final, which took place at the Marches Manufacturing Centre in Bridgenorth. This is the second year in a row students from SJT have won an award in this competition.
