Many congratulations to the group of Maltby Academy students who are one of the seven national winners of the ‘We Made It!’ competition.

The winning project, designed by Libby Barlow, Ella Nartley and Callum Wroe, beat over 520 other entries to make the shortlist of national finalists, as judged by a panel of manufacturing experts.

The ‘We Made It!’ competition, which is aimed at getting young people to think about careers in manufacturing, invited 11–14 year olds throughout the UK to let their imagination run wild and design a brand new product, whether it be a gadget, toy or gismo.

The national winners are having real-life prototypes of their winning designs built in one of the UK’s Fab Labs and then showcased at a special awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament in March.
