Over the last months Primary and Secondary Schools across Wales have worked on building a computer game based on a theme set by the DVLA and associate partners. Teams could select from:
Preventing Fire Hazards in the home
Identifying and avoiding Cyber Crime
Life on Planet Gaia
Air Ambulance transfer
The final was a high energy event with over 250 pupils attending from as far away as Conwy and Llanidloes to Usk and Caerleon.
All school finalists were awarded prizes and a new initiative this year was the category for 11 to 14 yrs pupils.
The final was hosted by Lucy Owen of BBC Wales - each team accompanied by a DVLA STEM Ambassador was interviewed before a live vote and judging panel (X-Factor style!)
STEM AmbassadorsKaren Pitt and Mark Jones are to be congratulated for their diligent work on this successful project.
