CREATE Education and Rolls-Royce are delighted to announce the winner of the New Scientist Live Competition.

The competition was launched at New Scientist Live 2019 in partnership with Rolls-Royce and provided schools, colleges and community groups with the opportunity to win an Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer with a years’ supply of filament.

To be in with a chance to win the prize, which has a total value in excess of £2000, students needed to create a solution to the question – ‘How could 3D printing be of use to engineers in the future?’

Their design could have been a 2D or 3D design and needed to have a brief description of their idea to show how they’d address problems facing engineers in the future.

“All of the entries were outstanding and illustrated how innovative you can get when you combine the creativity of young people with the endless possibilities of technologies such as 3D printing.  Well done to the Year 6 team at Leicester Islamic Academy – we look forward to seeing where their imagination takes them using their very own Ultimaker 3D printer” 

Paul Broadhead, Head of Community Investment & Education Outreach, Rolls-Royce plc

Pupils from Leicester Islamic Academy were presented with their prize and certificates at a special whole school interactive assembly held by representatives from both CREATE Education and Rolls-Royce, where the prize was unveiled to the school.

“It was a great privilege to see such variety and imagination in the entries we received. Congratulations to the winning Year 6 team, what a fabulous legacy for the school!

A great opportunity for the whole school to develop their creativity and innovation and to see their designs come to life through 3d printing, we can’t wait to see what they create!”

Michelle Chatterley, Head of CREATE Education.
