Rutvi Shah, Vrinda Parekh, Sarah Shareef and Sanaa Kabir joined together to create Team Ecolife for this years National STEM competition 2019 following a activity on a Science Excel day in January. Kingsbury was one of eleven schools selected to make it through to the final from over 250.
Team Ecolife created an invention called the ALL-IN-ONE RECYCLER which reached the BP Ultimate Stem Challenge Finals. This took place on Monday the 13 May 2019. The idea was to create a machine that would be able to separate waste into sections using infrared scanners to scan the temperatures of each item to be sorted into categories.
Each member, contributed into presenting their ideas to a panel of expert judges from industry. Rutvi Shah 8B created an animation that showed how the invention would be like in everyday life. Vrinda Parekh 8B made the PowerPoint Presentation that was shown in the Finals. Sarah Shareef 8K presented the steps we took in making a prototype. We all created an amazing prototype showcasing their idea.
Mr Waxman who went to watch them in the final at the Science Museum commented that the girls ”competed well against students from independent and grammar schools.”
