Final Presentations of Green STEM Challenge Collaboration with Imperial College
By Abha B, Year 12
On Thursday the 6th of May, ten Physics students from NHEHS arrived at the Imperial College Campus in White City. Five months ago, we had started a project set by the college, called the Green STEM Challenge. We were introduced to food supply chains and some of the main causes of environmental damage within them.
We were then split into teams along with students from three other schools (Drayton Manor, Cardinal Wiseman and Greenford High Schools), and tasked with coming up with a way to make food supply chains more eco-friendly and sustainable.
Over the next few months, each team devised their solutions, receiving mentoring, advice on writing reports and presentation skills from Imperial students. In the end, each team came up with a report and a presentation on six very different projects:
Arably – The Future of Farming
Green Journey – Our solution to more sustainable food chains
Creating a Methane-Capture Device
We presented our ideas at Imperial White City campus on the 10th of May to the rest of the teams and the students who guided us through the challenges.
This has been a brilliant opportunity to meet students from other schools and stretch our problem solving skills and we hope to come across more projects like this in the future.
