Smart Solutions Lead To Science Success

Young scientists are celebrating after applying their skills to solve issues as part of a national competition.

Moseley Park entered three teams for the Solutions for the Planet STEM contest – who were invited to the regional finals at the University of Wolverhampton.

The Year 10 students did extremely well, presenting their projects to a team of judges and other competing groups. They faced competition from each other as well as Heath Park, Colton Hills and NEWA.

Moseley’s Cut The Grease team did fantastically well, securing second place overall and only losing out to a solo presentation from partner-school Heath Park. They now face an anxious wait to see if they will qualify for the national final in London as one of the best runners-up.

The other Moseley Park teams – Global Farming and Employment Solutions – were both highly-commended.

Mr Phillips, who accompanied the 12 students, said: “All of our students should be congratulated on their superb performances. They faced some strong competition, but they did brilliantly well. We all have our fingers crossed that we’ve done enough to make the national finals later this year.”
