UK Space Design Competition - Imperial College, London

Four Moreton Sixth Form scientists took part in the final of this prestigious competition at Imperial College last month. Phoebe Griffith, Lottie Eyre, Bethan Doyle and Millie Adams-Davies were joined by over 160 other UK finalists. The students carried out an intensive industry simulation of meeting a demanding design brief - in this case to design a mining settlement on the surface of Mercury for 10,500 people.

Phoebe and Millie received two of the eight special awards at the end of the process - Phoebe for outstanding leadership, and Millie for exceptional scientific insight. They have both been invited as VIP guests to a prestigious scientific lecture at Oxford University in May.
