Blogging science to life

At-Bristol's studio was full of budding engineers as the Institution of Civil Engineers' (ICE) Create Sport event kicked off yesterday. The Regional Final of this competition to design a new sporting venue saw incredibly talented teams of students from across the South West showcasing their ideas. Dedicated students came from Thomas Keble School, Ridgeway School, Court Fields Community School, Penair School and Penrice Community College. With intricate models, interesting posters, detailed reports and well-perfected presentations, At-Bristol and the judges were in awe of the effort that these teams invested into their designs for this important competition.
And what a tough competition to judge - we're glad we could leave the decision-making to the panel of experts! Richard Hill, from Capita Symonds (the firm behind Wembley Stadium, the new Wimbledon, Man-U's and Man City's grounds) came to cast a keen eye over the entries. Colin Taylor from the University of Bristol was also giving the teams a grilling, alongside the ICE's Trish Johnson.
To reward their hard work, the teams explored the two floors of interactive exhibits here and got stuck in making animations, took part in Live Lab and saw our real human brain exhibit up close. At-Bristol's live science team literally exploded into action as we treated the competitors to bangs, whizzes and explosions in an exclusive "Launch it! show.
Ok…so you want to know the winner. Well, after two hours deliberating (yes, it was that close), Penair School, Truro was the winner. Well done! They left with goodies from Two Seasons, ICE and the University of Bristol, including digital cameras and school rucksacks. And, of course, they get to attend the Big Bang fair with ICE and are shortlisted to attend the National Create Sport Final this June in London. A great prize for a great team effort!
