St Wilfrid’s had a fantastic time at South East Big Bang Fair last week with two Science teams winning two prizes and came runners up! The two groups will now travel to Birmingham NEC next March to compete in the National Finals.
Year 10 students, Rushil Patel, Darren Da Silva, Benjamin Piggot and Aaron Erikkson created Mindmote, a device that is worn in a headset, that reads brain frequencies to remotely control devices in the home. The idea is to help those with restricted/limited mobility. The group won Edwards Prize for Technology and were the Runners Up in the Intermediate Engineering category.
Year 10 students, Caprice Hearsay and Carmen Goddard created Negativity and Its Effects on Teenage Girls. The girls asked female students to listen to quotes from the film “Mean Girls” and their heart rate was recorded before and after. They found that there was an average increase of 10 beats per minute. The girls won the GSK Prize for Healthcare and were Runners Up in the Intermediate/Senior Science.
Well done to both teams, St Wilfrid’s is very proud of you all!
