On Friday 17th May, our teams from schools across the South East attended the Museum of London for a packed day of presentations, ranging from ideas to tackle unsustainable palm oil to solar powered cars.
Our 10 teams represented three schools; Bohunt School Worthing, Plashet School and Oaks Park High School. Each team delivered a 5-minute presentation and then answered questions from the judging panel. The judges included representatives from our business partners Tarmac, SGN, and SUEZ, as well as a guest judge from Ashden.
As the students took part in a workshop, the judges began their deliberations, undertaking the difficult challenge of coming up with the two Runners Up, and the Winner. These are the results:
Global Volcanoes, Plashet School: This team’s Big Idea is to build an artificial volcano that emits sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere to combat the damaging effects of global warming.
O6, Oaks Park High School: This team are passionate about getting more people to recycle plastic and want to start with their school. They are setting out to raise money for their campaign by selling badges made from old plastic bottle caps.
Planet Savers, Plashet School : This team are committed to tackling CO2 emissions through creating an app which encourages adults and children to change how they consume energy.
Planet Savers are now through to the National Final at the Palace of Westminster on June 26th.
We wish team Planet Savers the best of luck as they prepare for the National Final. However, we want to congratulate ALL the students who presented on Friday for their fantastic ideas and engaging presentations. Well done everyone!
