Highbridge students compete in eco-classroom design challenge

A group of Highbridge students has competed in a regional science and engineering challenge to design an eco-classroom.

Six students from King Alfred School's Year 9 visited Fry's Conference Centre in Keynsham to take part in the contest.

"This year's challenge was to design an eco-classroom and by working together over several weeks, the team produced a model of their classroom, a sales pitch and a working report of their experience," a school spokesman told

"Although they didn't win, their work was extremely impressive and their presentation skills were fantastic. The competition from 15 other schools was to a very high standard."

As part of their project the team worked closely with Highbridge industrial company Manuflex and enjoyed working with their mentor Ray Stewart.
