Science Mavericks Winners

Monday 22nd January saw the Annual Delta Mavericks event, hosted by the Delta science team take place at Education House in Knottingley. Fifteen of our highest performing year 11 scientists were selected to represent The Vale Academy and pit their wits against the finest students from the other Delta academies.

The theme of the day was centred around what scientific obstacles would need to be overcome to inhabit a newly discovered planet. It consisted of a range of high level challenges pulling on the students knowledge, analytical and mathematical skills that they have acquired whilst learning science at The Vale.

At the half way stage the Vale sat in second position but with some fantastic team work and perseverance they managed to catch and overtake Rossington Academy to become this years champions.

Go Team Vale and well done to all involved!
