Blundell's pupil Jack Armstrong Williams, age 12, is celebrating after winning a national Design and Technology competition. Jack designed and prototyped a vehicle for the future in the Alu Challenge, beating 600 other entrants from schools across the country to win first prize of £200 for himself and a 3D printer for the school. The challenge, for students aged 11 14, was to design a vehicle that demonstrated an entirely new way to get around using aluminium whilst discovering how design can make products more sustainable to make, use and dispose of. Jack travelled to Birmingham's Thinktank Museum to receive his prize and a certificate of achievement from Professor Michael Stacey from the University of Nottingham.
