Axe Valley Academy

Engineers Without Borders

ASPIRE students from the Axe Valley Community College and pupils from the Axe Valley Learning Community enjoyed a messy evening of hands on science as ASPIRE welcomed Plymouth University and their Engineers Without Borders to the school.  Students were tasked with purifying water using various materials but there was a catch.  The groups were allocated countries and the more developed the countries were in the world the more money they had to buy materials to clean the water.  Groups had to priorities their spending to get the desired outcome.  Congratulations to the teams for their structured thinking and excellent question and answer session at the end.
