On 12th October, 11 Y10-13 and 8 Y9 students entered the UK Space Design Competition, which took place at Westminster Academy. This competition was a space industry simulation challenge to design a space settlement for up to 10,000 inhabitants
Year 9 were impressive in their resilience and exemplary behaviour during a difficult competition. They showed great leadership with two of them being voted for presidency in the group competition.
Year 10-13 students spent a day designing a space settlement for a mining company on an asteroid – Psyche 16. Throughout the day, they met many challenges but managed to solve the problems with teamwork, diligence and abstract thinking. Some of their designs were highly praised by the examiners.
This is the first time QK has entered the Competition and although they did not win the regional round, they did the school proud learning many skills and with an amazing presentation, it looked like they had been doing it for years.
Huge thanks to Mr Hobbs who organised the teams and offered much support throughout a very long day, and a massive congratulate to the following students that took part, they were amazing!
