S1 Make your Mark Challenge.
The Make your Mark challenge is a nation-wide activity with over 10,000 young people taking part. The challenge aims at bringing out the very best creative, enterprising, can-do qualities in young people. The challenge was unveiled on-line at 9am on Monday 13th November.
Teams of pupils worked all day on the challenge "Make life fun - make a ton" Every pupil was encouraged to contribute their imagination and ideas and we saw some excellent discussion - some ideas were much more practical than others!
By 2.30 each team had come up their idea and had produced a business plan and marketing strategy. Cecil Hughson helped judge the competition. He was quite impressed with a lot of the work and eventually the judges agreed on the winner.
The winning team was Cunduswick Clay. Their product was for a magnetic clay, designed as a fun way of making fridge magnets. Cundiswick Clay so impressed the judges that the team was selected to attend the Regional Final in Edinburgh.
