Year 9 students are #1 entrepreneurs of the future
Eight Year 9 'Most Able and Talented' students won first prize in the finals of the ‘Innovation Challenge’ in conjunction with Oxford University. It was held at the University’s Begbroke Science Park in Oxford.
Working in groups, competitors were asked to develop a product that unitises a new technology given to them by the University. Presentations were then finally delivered to the judges in true ‘Dragon’s Den’ style.
The students were given information about a new type of smart fabric that offers wearers duel heating and cooling, allowing individuals to control their personal temperature. Using plastic polyethylene, the fabric has nanosized pores making it easier for heat to escape. One side of the fabric is coated with carbon, to emit thermal energy while the other side is coated with copper, a metal that is good at trapping heat.
Our team presented their idea of a jumper that uses this technology. Body temperature would be controlled depending on which way round the jumper was worn. Ingenious!
Mr Neil Waite, Curriculum Leader for Design & Technology said, ‘Our students were amazing, presenting a clever and marketable product with a confident and dynamic delivery. The competition was tough and they should be very proud of what they have achieved in winning such a prestigious award’
