A group of Year 8 engineers from Northwood School successfully impressed the judges at a regional final and won the Most Promising Engineering Award.
After winning the Borough Faraday challenge, the team, made up of Harry, Shreya, Levi, Blert and Jemelia, were invited to the final London and Essex competition.
They made the decision they wanted to build a space craft that would help create power to transfer to the spaceship, therefore helping humans to explore even further.
They also demonstrated how important space exploration as part of the second aspect of the competition.
Harry said: “Our first objective was to present our display to the judges and other schools. After our presentation, we attended a lecture about space and then heard the final results of the competition.
“We were very tense as they went through the first two awards and finally it was announced that we had won the award for ‘Most Promising Engineers,’ an achievement that we had dreamt of.
“We could hardly believe that we had won and returned to school feeling very proud and happy with our victory.”
Head of Science, Ms Jenni Seagrove, said: “We are all extremely proud of the resilience and cooperation that they showed and the award that they achieved.”
