DYNAMIC young schoolchildren put their heads together to come up with some space age engineering feats.

Crookhorn Community College hosted an engineering day for junior school children from across East Hampshire.

Engineering consultant Kevin Wright joined the children for the day-long event.

They were tasked with creating a shuttle which would travel from one side of the school hall to the other.

The winning team were Year 5 pupils from St Peter’s Catholic Primary School, Stakes Hill Road, Waterlooville.

Teacher Jenny Roberston, who took 20 children from the school along to the event, said: ‘It was a brilliant day.

‘In the morning we had a presentation from Mr Wright telling the children a little bit about space investigation and the history of satellites and how they can help us in modern life today.

‘Then they were given a challenge to create a shuttle which could travel from an imaginary London to New York.

‘The were only given a balloon, some cardboard and some marbles but they did brilliantly.’
