The School:

Whitemoor Academy in Nottingham is in their sixth year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in a Crime Scene Investigation Challenge Day. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students across the school to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.


The Challenge: Future Transport

Over the course of the day, students were Working in a Team to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot who’d travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Teams applied their Problem Solving and Staying Positive skill through a series of challenges designed to put their skills to the test. At the end of the day, students tested each other’s’ designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas in front of the class.

What they said:

  • “I just love seeing my class respond like this…everyone has been engaged throughout and those that lack confidence academically are being recognised as great team members and sharing ideas – this is boosting their self-esteem brilliantly.” – Teacher
  • “This challenge has been spot on for all of my children – they are really aware of how working in a team on this means they are getting better results in the timeframe.” – Teacher
  • “We thought we weren’t going to finish in time but we all worked together to get it done!” – Student
  • “I’ve loved today. I like working in a team like this and using our imaginations. Do your like our vehicle?” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
