51 pupils from Year 9 took part in the annual Lockheed Martin Engineering Challenge this week. All of the pupils worked really hard and after a whole day of designing, building, testing and teamwork, each team presented their working prototypes to the judges from Lockheed Martin. The visiting engineers were impressed by the imagination, creativity and ‘can-do’ attitude of the PGS pupils, especially the positive way in which pupils responded to advice from the engineers throughout the day.

The winners were Team 7 (Laura Hantrais, Lucy Hawden, Liberty Mitchell Brock and Elsa Hares) and the runners up were Team 1 (Jay Clay, Hector Crandon, Tommy Millard, Andrew Pellett and Monty Wingham).
