Friday, 10 July 2015
Four Engineering students at Seevic College have won a competition to design and build an installation for the College’s newest social space, The Hub.
Students Bien Evangelista,18, James Neall,17, Alex Haroldsson,17, and Riley Watson,18, used 100% recycled materials to produce their installation.
45 Level 2 and Level 3 BTEC Engineering students at the College, located at Runnymede Chase, Benfleet, were split in to eight teams for the competition.
The students presented their constructions to a judging panel consisting of senior staff and Principal Nick Spenceley on 25 June, with the winning team receiving a £100 Amazon voucher donated by the College’s Student Association.
Director of STEM at Seevic College, Karen Bradley said: “Bien, James, Alex and Riley’s interesting and intricate design was produced with great care and skill.”
An additional award was presented to Judy Kagwi, 18, for Outstanding Craftsmanship. Karen added: “Her design was fabricated to a very high standard and was particularly commended by the judges.”
The teams had only four weeks to complete their installation, having to research, design and construct their final piece. The winners used 100% recycled materials included old zimmer frames and scrap aluminium.
