Design Technology Competition at St Aidan’s for KS3,KS4 & KS5
Students had to complete a design folder and produce a prototype solution to time a flashing beacon this year. The task was modified with a greater degree of difficulty for older students. Each group represented the school admirably, with excellent behaviour, a mature and responsible approach to activities and super collaborative learning with other schools. An outstanding level of achievement in the KS5 category was rewarded with a 3rd place finish in all set tasks against many other local schools.
