The national enterprise challenge

The National Enterprise Challenge

For their Careers Day at the end of the Summer Term, all Year 7 and 8 pupils participated in the STEM-focussed National Enterprise Challenge: to repurpose Air Products gas cylinders by designing a viable product in just one day!

Two Channing teams were selected for the 2021 UK Final: Team Green Beam from Year 7 and Team Vac-Can from Year 8.

Congratulations to Team Green Beam: Rosa, Diya, Daisy, Zoe, Annabel, Sophie and Ester, who were inspired to create dual-purpose plant pots and lampshades, ingeniously using both ends of the cylinder, and who were selected as The National Enterprise Key Stage 3 Champions. The judges at Air Products and at The National Enterprise Challenge HQ described themselves as ‘blown away’ by the standard of Team Green Beam’s video pitch.
