Year 9 students rocked the SEGRO Challenge! 🚀
Last week, our talented Year 9 students embarked on a thrilling adventure at the annual SEGRO Challenge, skillfully organised by our amazing partners at Learning to Work.
Teaming up with SEGRO and Waites Construction professionals, our students delved into the vibrant world of the Slough Trading Estate. They were set a challenge – to unleash their creativity and innovation for a new business concept at 201 Bedford Avenue, all while upholding SEGRO’s pillars of Creativity, Innovation, and Sustainability.
Our students, working collaboratively, crafted incredible ideas such as Go Carting tracks, an Animal play park and supermarket. Yet, it was Team Exodus that stole the show with their groundbreaking proposal – rentable office space for smaller companies, adorned with eco-friendly solar panels, a bug hotel, indoor trees, and units opening onto a communal garden. Their vision included a hub library, IT space, catering area, and ample on-site parking. The judges were really impressed with their outstanding teamwork and commitment to the project, earning them the highest marks during the presentation.
Now, we're thrilled to announce that Team Project Exodus is heading to the final in December, competing against other schools! We wish them the best of luck as they showcase their innovation and passion on a broader stage.
A huge shoutout to Learning to Work for their continuous support in shaping careers and fostering enterprise at Westgate through the annual SEGRO Challenge. Special thanks to the dedicated professionals who worked side by side with our students, sharing valuable insights into their career pathways and job roles.
