The regional finals of the Faraday Challenge saw teams designing and making a device that could carefully pick up objects and accurately locate them on a given target.

The teams were assessed throughout the day on the variety of their initial ideas, design and development, budget management, choice of tools and materials and how well they worked as a team.

They also had to make a video log during the day to record the process of how their team solved the challenge.

Sherborne Prep Year 8 pupils finished in first place, scoring full marks for spending the lowest ever amount on materials. The team is eagerly awaiting news as to whether they will qualify as one of the three teams across the country to reach the National Finals.
