Science Outreach and Engagement

Smart Products

20 Year 10 students from Nunthorpe Academy in Middlesbrough worked with Science Outreach completing challenges and experiments widening their awareness of advanced smart materials and developing their experimental and investigative skills.

Our new experts were supported in forming their own ‘companies’ developing their learning and ideas into novel smart products with advice from local entrepreneurs and an Intellectual Property Rights lawyer. Following many weeks of dedicated work, the students pitched their ideas to an expert judging panel. A new cleaning product and expanding toys got special commendations.
