Another winning tech project

Posted: 23rd May 2017

Tech staff were so impressed with Jake Hulme's final product in his GCSE course work that they entered it into a Devon wide competition run by the North Devon Manufacturers Association. Jake, from year 11, has been awarded first prize for his surfboard rack and bagged himself a very respectable £100 cheque. The project is part of Jake's Resistant Materials GCSE and features an innovative design reminiscent of a giant ribcage. The design development work in Jake's folder was first class and really clinched the deal.  

Jake saw off stiff competition from many other local schools and came first in his category ahead of rival designs from West Buckland and Park school.  He attended the awards evening at the Barnstaple Hotel to collect his prize and show off his design to a vast collection of engineering industry professionals.

Jake follows in the footsteps of many former Braunton Academy students whose Technology projects have been recognised in regional and national competitions for their innovation and excellence.
