School pupils bat­tle it out for build­ing de­sign

Evening Times - - NEWS -

PUPILS from across Glas­gow are putting their lan­guage skills to the test in a com­pe­ti­tion run by one of the city’s univer­si­ties.

More than 250 S3 pupils at five west of Scot­land schools are tak­ing part in Es­pa­cios In­creíbles, a chal­lenge to de­sign a build­ing or space with Span­ish in­spi­ra­tion.

Or­gan­ised by the Univer­sity of Strath­clyde, the stim­u­lus for the de­signs will be from the pic­tures on post­cards sent by Strath­clyde Ar­chi­tec­ture stu­dents study­ing on ex­change in Chile and Bo­livia.

The project in­volved teenagers from St Thomas Aquinas Se­condary and St Mar­garet Mary’s Se­condary.

The win­ning en­try from each school will at­tend a fi­nal with their class at the Univer­sity on April 24, with win­ners given the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate their de­sign as a 3D model.
