Once again Cullompton Community College excelled with both teams winning awards in the competition.Three months of meetings and team work produced a display, model, written report and presentation to the judges showcasing the research and ideas behind the projects, namely an Eco-Hotel and a Railway Station for the future.
The commitment, motivation, collaboration and ideas were impressive and that surely helped secure their wins against strong competition from schools across Devon. Well done all involved and thanks too to the Met Office mentors Geoff and Ben who assisted the teams with guidance and advice.
