Four Tonbridgians competed in the final of the Young Engineers STEM School of the Year contest at the NEC in Birmingham.
Joseph Anning (HS), Matthew Barker (PS), John Jones (JH) and Andrew Lam (HS) set-up and manned a display stand with hands-on activities for visitors and endured two rounds of intense probing and grilling from the judges, as well as taking part in a video interview. Although they didn’t win, the boys were highly commended by the judges.
Tonbridge was one of six finalists selected from all of the entries to this prestigious competition from across the country.
For the final, the engineers were required to display the best of their STEM based projects and activities from the past year.
The competition is organised by Young Engineers, a national educational charity that promotes engineering through the practical application of science to all UK students aged 7-19.
