15th May 2020 – We are delighted to announce the Loreto winners of AECOM’s Imagineers competition!  This challenged Y9 pupils to solve a global problem using a creative engineering solution.

The standard of the entries was very high, but it was Holly Cooper‘s design for a Carbon Dioxide Extraction Turbine that was awarded first prize (click on image to enlarge):

Emma Staff was responsible for the runner-up design:

Both students would have gone on to the regional and possibly the national rounds, but sadly these have been cancelled due to the current challenges.  None-the-less, we’d like to congratulate them for their excellent designs.  We’d also like to thank everyone who entered the competition and showed so much creativity and talent.
