Y10 St Margaret Ward Young Engineers feature on BBC Breakfast show!

This year’s Y10 young engineer team have been working tirelessly since October to build an electric car that they raced at Mallory Park in Leicester last Wednesday.

We were honoured to be asked to work with Mike Bushell and the BBC to film a piece for their Breakfast show. Mike and his camera crew came into school on the 25th May to film some pre-race scenes. They then continued to shoot footage on race day while following the team’s progress. Mike Bushell even drove a lap of the track in the team’s race car!

Big congratulations to the team so far for all of their hard work and effort. The competition is voluntary and the club is held after school on Tuesdays. They are now going to be busy editing video footage of the whole project which is this year’s main criteria for the Young Engineer of the Year award. Good luck team!

2018 Team members - Mackenzie Mytenka, Fiona Chan, Stephanie Cockerton, Harry Woollam, Uren Ahthithan, Leyton Ford, Jacob Barlow, William Wright, Rhys Bishop, Gabriel Wrycza
