Brainy students are set to compete against top schools in the UK after impressing judges at a science and engineering fair.
Pupils from Stratford School Academy, in Forest Lane, Forest Gate, presented an engineering project they had been working on together at The Big Bang London 2013.
The event, held on July 3 at Westminster Kingsway College, saw over 2,000 schools talking about their innovative ideas and inventions in front of a panel of experts.
The Stratford School Academy team were named as London Regional finalist of the National Science & Engineering Competition which means they will compete in the national Big Bang Fair next year.
Ms Latifa Salmoun, a teacher at the school, said: “We are extremely proud of all the students at Stratford School Academy and their wonderful project and they certainly proved to the judges that they are scientists of the future at The Big Bang London.
“The students will now be working hard to be ready for the UK finals at Big Bang 2014 in March.”
The winning students were Krupesh Chudasama, Kunjesh Chudasama, Bejamin Perez-Condori, Talveer Sokhal, Mohsin Khaliq, Dhairya Patel, Kyan Belger and Noman Nasir, all aged 14 and 15.
The fair was hosted by Ortis Deley who presents the BBC’s Gadget Show and there were many exhibits to inspire students to follow careers in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Maths.
Young people who attended learned from a Bionic Man and his medical implants, crime scene investigators, maths busking, classroom medics, the Royal Veterinary College, the Robogals Robot and leading businesss from across London.
Speakers also included Imran Khan, chief executive of British Science Association, and Paul Jackson, chief executive of EngineeringUK.
