‘Tomorrow’s Engineers’’ Event at Q.U.B.

On Thursday 6th June four second form pupils - Karl Depayso, Mark Woods, Frankie Shanks and Tom Corr, accompanied by Head of Technology and Design Mr Sammy Taggart, travelled to the Whitla Hall at Queen’s University where they represented the school in the prestigious ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers’ competition.

The event saw Grosvenor’s representatives compete against pupils from seven other schools in a programme entitled ‘Sentinus Engineering Solutions’ where they were charged with the task of creating an environmentally friendly mode of transport. The competition was judged by professional engineers such as Ruth Barr, Dr Ian Thompson, Dr Michael Cregan and Derek McMullan.  Following the conclusion of the event Grosvenor's team was rewarded with a prize for ‘The Best Use of Engineering Theory’.

Congratulations to the School’s four representatives, as well as the Technology and Design department as a whole - led by Mr Taggart but also including Miss Janine Semple, whose help and guidance were instrumental in the pupils’ success.
