Bede's Galactic Challenge

Students from Year 7 & 8 took part in Bede’s School Galactic Challenge Day on Saturday 20 January. This is the third time the competition has been held and our participating students were excited about the brief they had received just 24 hours previously: they would be building a subterranean Martian research base in the year 2060. Our students were put into a company called Solaris along with students from three other schools. In total there were four competing companies totally just over 100 Year 7 & 8 students. After a welcome speech from the Deputy Head of Bede’s the students were whisked off by Sixth Formers who were to act as their CEO for Solaris. The accompanying staff were told clearly that we were not to help in any way – the students were on their own.

The CEO organised elections for a president for Solaris from the Year 7 & 8s, then the president held elections for section chiefs: Operations, Systems, Automation and Human. The students then hit the ground running and had 4 ½ hours to produce a PowerPoint detailing the construction of a subterranean research centre to house 400 people. The students had to look at current technology and developing technology that might be useful in making such a base. Estimation of cost was entertaining and despite price tags of $5 billion in some cases it was pointed out during judging that the ISS has cost $1 billion to date.

At the end of a very busy and full day all the companies had to present their PowerPoint to a panel of judges made up from academia, industry and the founder of the of Space Design Competition. Despite a very thorough presentation and some excellent answers to some tricky questions Solaris was pipped to the post by another company. All the students had a great day and the parents who attended the judging and presentations were proud of what they had achieved.
