St Louis' Kilkeel Primary Technology Challenge

The annual Primary Technology Challenge was held in St Louis' Kilkeel on the 14th December 2010.  As usual this event was well attended by the local primary schools vying for title of Technology champions.  The task was to design and manufacture a flashing Christmas decoration from LED's and various materials.  Under the masterful organisation of Mr David Morgan and the beady eye of Damien the technician, they were ably assisted by the sixth form pupils who coached and mentored their partner school to produce a high quality outcome. This year's winners came from Carrick PS, followed by Kilkeel PS in second and St Colman's Kilkeel in third place.  Well done to everyone involved in keeping this worthwhile competition going.

Practical Action is a development charity with a difference. We know the simplest ideas can have the most profound, life-changing effect on poor people across the world. This is why, for over 40 years, we have been working closely with some of the world’s poorest people using simple technology to fight poverty and transform their lives for the better.   They offer some great resources in teaching sustainability through Technology and Design, providing downloads, videos and presentations.  For your free poster download click here
