STEM Solution for Ocean Plastics

Inspirational Clevedon Learning Trust pupils plan plastic ocean sweeper machines among a host of amazing ideas in science competition.

Year 4 Mary Elton Primary School students have been working on science projects for the Young Imagineers competition.

Some of their invention ideas included; plastic ocean sweeper machines to tackle the plastic pollution issue, an assistance wardrobe for people who use wheelchairs, and a collar for guide dogs that would enable the dog and blind owner to communicate. 

The competition is about inspiring young scientists and helping teach the children about science and engaging them in fun, relevant and rewarding science experiences.

Headteacher Dean Hudd said: “Our pupils really engaged in this competition with enthusiasm, with some truly incredibly ideas. It was a wonderful learning experience.”

The prize for the winner includes an interpretation of the winning idea produced and exhibited inside the London Science Museum for a minimum of one month.  Good luck Mary Elton!!!
