A tall or­der but they’re up for it!

Sunderland Echo - - Retro -

In­ge­nious in­ven­tors from a Sun­der­land school were hop­ing to land a na­tional prize.

Five pupils from Monkwear­mouth School were among young­sters from 18 schools com­pet­ing for the re­gional ti­tle at Univer­sity of Sun­der­land’s St Peter’s Cam­pus.

They did not win, but all had done su­perbly well to get to this stage and were com­mended by the judges.

The over­all win­ner was from Yarm School, Teesside.

The Monkwear­mouth team came up with a trio of in­ven­tions to help dis­abled peo­ple, chil­dren with spe­cial needs and res­i­dents of the de­vel­op­ing world.

All pupils have spent about four months de­sign­ing and build­ing their in­ven­tions.

The com­pe­ti­tion is a joint ven­ture.
