On Tuesday 26 February, Alupro and Alfed (organisations representing the Aluminium industry) joined forces in Birmingham to celebrate the winners of the Alu D&T Challenge for schools.
Over the 2012 autumn term, students aged 11-14 entered the competition to come up with the best sustainable design using aluminium in one of four categories: packaging, technology, built environment and transport.
Over 70 schools took part, with about 1000 students producing really great work, but only four students could ultimately be chosen winners for their outstanding designs, while another two were also highly commended.
The ceremony took place at the Thinktank Science Museum, where category winners were presented with a certificate and £250 prize money and got to explore the gallery. The winners also earned their school a great prize in the form of a Rapman 3D printer, which was also demonstrated on the day.
