The School: Oasis Academy Byron

Oasis Academy Byron is an outstanding school in Croydon, they have been working with Enabling Enterprise to develop their students’ enterprise skills such as Working in a Team, Problem Solving and Using Imagination for three years. They have taken part in lesson time projects, business trips and today the whole school took on their exciting enterprise Challenge Day.

The Challenge: Future Transport

Preparing for the future is important for the students at Oasis Academy Byron and today they had a particularly big challenge on their hands. Ronnie the robot has been sent back from the year 3030 on the hunt for transport designers for the future. The year 3030 looks very different, with environments that the current transport of 2016 will no longer be suitable for. Ice cities, desert expanses, busy urban areas and toxic jungles all required a new form of transport for the people of the future. The students quickly worked together in their teams to analyse the future environments and think about current transport features. They then shared their ideas and creativity to come up with a brand new type of transport.

The Results:

Students across the school showed excellent team work by taking turns, listening to each other and ensuring they all took responsibility for their tasks. Their creativity was inspired from all areas which resulted in some outstanding vehicles, adapted accordingly for the new futuristic environments. Camouflage buses, flying cars with a slide to exit, underwater robots and vehicles with hoovers to clean the polluted air. We were so impressed with both the creativity and resilience on show from the students at Oasis Academy Byron, demonstrating what great potential they have for their future.

What they said:

  • “It’s wonderful to see them being so creative and collaborating together” – Teacher, Year 5
  • “I think working in a team is much better than working on your own because you can get more done and it’s fun!” – Student, Year 2

Well done to everyone who was involved.
