Ecology Conscious Year 7's Ideas for Thorpe Park
Two teams of Year 7 students competed in the Year 7 inter-schools Stretch and Challenge project to design a new 'world' for Thorpe Park on 12th March 2018. The teams had a tight deadline to design their world, make a video and a model and prepare a presentation for the competition. This was not made any easier by losing two school days to snow!
The teams (Fantasy Fun and Planeteers) had slick presentations and spoke confidently in the daunting theatre at Farnborough 6th Form. The Fantasy Fun team had a particularly tough job as they presented first. They were unlucky not to win this time, but the competition was very fierce and they did impress the judges, who are Environmental Studies students at the College. Both teams should be commended for organising and producing their projects with very little help from teachers or other adults - their work was very much their own and was to a very high standard.
