What our SSEF challenge alumni have to say ...
“It was truly an unforgettable life changing experience, where we will use the skills and lessons learned for the rest of our careers."
"The single most important thing that has ever happened to me ... the extent to which I had the experience of a lifetime, learnt unimaginable amounts about ... engineering and design, and how close the team got over the trip is beyond my wildest dreams."
“Bede’s Challenge was a great experience for all involved. Excellent organisation and the friendly enthusiasm of the students ensured that the day ran really well, with the mixed teams of students, each drawn from a number of different schools, collaborating happily and producing impressive design proposals. There was a real buzz as they researched and refined their ideas and the confidence with which they presented their ideas – and defended them in the face of probing questions from the panel of judges – proved just how much they had gained in both knowledge and confidence from the experience.
