Design a Drone Competition

What a super start to the day at Dishforth CE this morning. The whole school gathered in the hall to welcome two special visitors -Av from Amazon and Jonathon from CAA (Civil Aviation Authority).Unbeknown to the children, Av and Jonathon had come to present prizes for a competition which Class 3 entered recently.

I am delighted to announce that three children from Dishforth CE are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place regional winners in the Amazon & CAA Design a Drone Competition!.

Congratulations to Owen 1st place and regional winner for Yorkshire and Humberside, Molly 2nd and Imogen 3rd for their amazing drone designs.

What a fantastic achievement by our children - the competition attracted 1700 entries, with Dishforth CE the only school to have three regional winners! Owen's design will now go through to the national final along with the winning designs from each of the other regions (only twelve in total.)

All three designers were presented with a super basket of books and goodies from Amazon. In addition to his baskets, Owen, as the regional winner has also won £1000 for our school to be spent on STEM (Science, Maths, Engineering & Technology) resources. (He already has some suggestions on we could spend it!)

Fantastic designs from all our designers.

Congratulations and really well done, Owen, Molly and Imogen!
