STEM Competition Winners

By Ballyclare High School on 8 May, 2024



We are delighted to announce that the work of Year 9 pupils Lucas and Reuben has achieved Highly Commended in the ‘If you were an engineer’ competition.

Pupils were tasked with designing a solution to a real life problem that would make a difference to people’s lives. Their idea was to develop electrochromic glass for car windscreens that would reduce glare by controlling the amount of light that enters a car, making it safer for drivers on a sunny day.

The boys’ entry was one of tens of thousands submitted into the competition and went through two rounds of grading with engineers. Lucas and Reuben will receive their award at a ceremony at Ulster University in June and their work will be displayed in a public exhibition. Congratulations on this fantastic achievement!
