On Thursday 10th January 2019, we attended the Shropshire Star STEM Challenge launch, held at the Marches Centre of Manufacturing and Technology in Bridgnorth.
We're really excited to be a part of this years challenge - a team from Qi will be acting as business mentors for a group of 6 pupils from The Telford Langley School, a school based just a few minutes away from our site.
Their brief? 'To design a product, using the elements of STEM, that has a positive benefit to an individual/group and the environment, or just the environment.'
Over the coming weeks the pupils will be using this brief to plan, design, build, and present a product, with our help along the way!
A Judging and Awards day will be held on July 4th, where there will be seven team prizes to be won:
We're really excited to be a part of this years challenge with other local businesses, acting as mentors for schools in the area. We look forward to hearing some of the pupils ideas in the coming weeks!
