Egg Race Challenge 2015

Egg 1Every year in July, the Harris Crystal Palace Design Technology Department have been holding the Great Egg Race challenge for Years 7, 8 and 9 DT students, inviting many academies to compete for the coveted Egg Race Trophy.

A small group of students from HBAED took part in the 2015 Egg Challenge day at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace on Friday 3 July. Our boys came third place by 1 point!

The boys represented HBAED extremely well and impressed the staff at HCACP with their skills and way they carried out each challenge.

William and Kyou took part in the DT Challenge where they designed and made a mount for a ping pong cannon (pictured right).

Kieran and Michael demonstrated their excellent catering skills in a master chef style challenge making a variety of sweet and savoury dishes based on a Carnival theme (picture below).

Connor and Ross took part in the textiles challenge where they made a bunting (pictured below) based on the HBAED theme and included an element of electronics by making a circuit with flashing LED lights. Although the boys have had no experience in textiles they took on the challenge and work extremely well.


The boys came very well prepared and impressed the DT department and other students with their designs, organisation and construction of the mount. 

None of the students asked for help throughout the day as they knew five points are lost for assistance and aimed to problem solve themselves. 

The Harris Federation Great Egg Race is based on the 1980s Great Egg Race BBC programme in which teams were to make mechanical creations in an attempt to solve a problem set at the start of the show. The name was obtained from the initial challenge of making a device capable of transporting an egg the furthest possible distance without breaking it.

Please give this group of students a huge pat on the back when you see them around the school.
