Pellings judge local schools event

Caroline Thomson acted as a judge at the Young Engineers Junior K'Nex Area Challenge last week, a community event held for Bromley Primary Schools.

The event, held on 5th June in the Council Chamber at the Bromley Civic Centre, provided Year 5 pupils from local primary schools with a chance to practice being 'young engineers'. The purpose of the day was to inspire young people to develop an interest in design, construction and engineering, and recognise the importance and excitement of these as future career paths.

Pupils were given a challenge to design and produce a vehicle to carry visitors around the proposed regenerated Crystal Palace Park. They used their problem solving, communication and team working skills to produce a model to meet the brief that would travel unaided for a metre.

Bromley Education Business Partnership facilitated the event and with Caroline representing Pellings, and Caroline Kirk from Affinity Sutton, acting as judges.

Caroline was delighted to be involved, 'As an organisation, we are delighted to support the event and it was wonderful to see the children interacting with each other, working as a team and, most importantly, having fun!' she said.
