WSP Shard Prizegiving

Following on from their lecture about The Shard, WSP returned to visit the Year 9s in June. During their science classes, the students had been working on designing and building models that would take the role of a community building. This challenged them to consider the practical science of building materials, natural elements, energy consumption and the affect on the community.

The top six teams each delivered a presentation to the judges, explaining the reasons behind their design ideas. The best teams all received a mixture of prizes, with the winning team receiving tickets to visit The Shard’s 72nd floor with a view 800ft above the city of London.
