Churston wins at the MADE project
The MADE project is a Torbay wide project where secondary schools are partnered with a local high tech company. The company, for CFGS this year it is Spirent Communications, who design and manufacture GNSS testing equipment, act as a client and provide feedback on the design and make task undertaken by the students. This year was the first year that a KS4 competition has been held and the team from CFGS won against stiff competition from TBGS in particular. Their product was designed as an interactive game that represented the complexity of global satellite navigation. Spirent wanted a product of this nature for science fairs such as the Big Bang. The students developed and prototyped their design in record time and presented it very professionally at the final event held at the Riviera International Centre.
