Congratulations to Year 10 students Freya, Nina and Chloe who received Special Commendations for their entry – inspired by goal seven of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals – in the Davidson Inventors Challenge.
The Davidson Inventors Challenge is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology departments and the Association of Science Technology and Innovation. Over 150 students across the UK registered to research the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and then work on an innovative and sustainable solution to a problem of their choice. Of the five Godolphin students who entered this competition, three of them, Freya, Nina and Chloe, were awarded Special Commendations. Their project focused on the seventh Sustainability Goal, aiming to ‘ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services’ by 2030. They chose this goal because they identified that one of the largest problems the world faces in the present day is the lack of electricity for those who desperately need it and they also considered the demand for clean energy. Their achievement was especially impressive as they were in Year 9 at the time, whilst the teams who progressed to the finals teams were in Years 11 and the Sixth Form.
Well done to all the entrants and especially Freya, Nina and Chloe.
