Bronze winnersStudents gain Bronze Certificates in The Duke of York’s iDEA scheme
Jess and Daria, Year 9 students at Space Studio, are the first two students in Banbury to gain Bronze Certificates in The Duke of York’s iDEA scheme. This new scheme is like The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in that it is internationally recognized but it focuses on Digital and Enterprise skills. They had to complete badges on skills in four categories: Citizen, Worker, Maker and Entrepreneur.

Badges include understanding how to design a web page and keeping yourself safe online.

Well done to all who are working on their badges!

At Collins AerospaceCollins Aerospace Banbury

We took a trip down to Collins Aerospace Banbury on two separate occasions. On our first visit, the hydraulics team briefed us on their AEP project for us. They then offered us the opportunity to present our project’s work to them. They gave us useful critique and advice for our presentation.
We’d like to thank our client for this amazing opportunity.
