TEAMS from 20 Gloucestershire primary schools competed in the annual King’s School science challenge.

Pupils from years five and six worked in teams of four to design, build and test a structure to perform a specific task.

Fieldcourt Junior from Quedgeley were judged winners of the two hour challenge organised by the science department of King’s in Gloucester and sponsored by EDF Energy.

“We have been running this challenge for many years and I am always really impressed with the innovation and creativity of the children,” said Andy Moore, King’s head of science.

“While there was help and advice available from judges, many of whom work in the science and engineering world, and from the assisting staff, the completed challenge was all the work of the children, working together as a team to communicate and combine their ideas.”

The schools involved came from Gloucester and surrounding suburbs, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, the Forest of Dean, Stonehouse and Minchinhampton.
