TWO teams of students from Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School came first and third when they competed in the International Enterprise Challenge at RAF Cranwell last Friday.
The aim of the competition, which involved 10 teams from Lincolnshire schools, was to design and market a sports product in French or German.
The winning team, which included Year Nine students Disha Singhania, Zhuoran Yue, Georgia Waddington, Isabella Bradstock and Richa Tore, pictured above, created a Multi-Ballon or Multi-Ball, a kind of swing ball that could be used in different sports.
Richa said: “It was really good fun. Because we were in a group it wasn’t that bad presenting it in French.”
Georgia added: “We didn’t think we would win because we were one of the youngest groups.”
But the judges were very impressed with their work, saying it was an outstanding performance.
The other team, which was made up of Year 10 students, came third with their sash, which could be used to store items when taking part in sport.
The team of Emilia Pearce, Hannah Grain, Zoe Foote, Sophie Ktenas and Ome Kokoricha said the project really helped them with preparation for GCSEs as they got to talk to people in French.
