INTERNATIONAL INNOVATION SHOWCASE – FRIDAY 16th AUGUST, YARNTON MANOR
This summer, as part of it's award winning international summer school, Oxford Royale Academy (ORA) will be launching a new programme, to build relations between Chinese and UK students, with a view to encouraging innovation and global collaboration.
In the light of the recent news around Huawei, ORA are particularly keen to rebuild trust at a grassroots level. A STEM competition will result in a winning group of Chinese students travelling to Oxford in August, where they will be hosted by ORA. Here, they will join a group of around 40 British sixth form students (you!) for the final stage of the competition, where they will all present designs and attend an award ceremony later in the day. The event will run all day on 16th August at Yarnton Manor, ORA’s headquarters, just outside Oxford. You can read more about ORA here.
Please find below details of this exciting showcase that Oxford Royale Academy are hosting this summer for students who are interested in STEM and innovation projects.
Working in teams of up to 5, students are asked to design and/or manufacture a product that solves an everyday problem or challenge. Students can use a combination of electronic hardware and computer programming to design and manufacture their product. The final product must demonstrate the use of coding/programming techniques as well as physical design and creation such as 3D printing. There is no limit to the type of software and materials that may be used. Students will present their final designs/products at the International Innovation Showcase event at Yarnton Manor on Friday 16th August.
Prizes will be available for the most innovative responses to the challenge, judged against the following criteria: Innovation Scientific and technical ability Overall functionality Aesthetics and usability
