Engineering Education Scheme Awards 'Future Industry Leaders' Six students from Chelmsford County High School for Girls became the first National Champions of the Engineering Education Scheme Awards at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London on Thursday 17th September.  Over 250 schools; boys, girls and mixed, took part in the competition. 

EDT specialises in linking companies with local schools on science and engineering projects and spotted the Chelmsford team when they were working as part of the Engineering Education Scheme with BAE Systems PLC. The objective of the Chelmsford team’s project was to design a form of wearable technology. After research and consideration, the team chose to design a life jacket that would monitor vital signs of the wearer, such as body temperature, heart rate and GPS location, whilst simultaneously transmitting these data to a variety of potential rescue means – via nearby sea vessels, aircraft or onshore avenues.

Calls for Tim Hunt to be reinstated:  The head of a second girls' school group has criticised the treatment of Nobel laureate Sir Tim Hunt, saying pupils are resilient and will not be harmed by his "sexist" comments. Helen Fraser, CEO of the Girls' Day School Trust, said the biochemist, 72, should be reinstated to the unpaid honorary role at University College London that he lost after giving a speech about the "trouble with girls" in science. It comes after Charlotte Vere, executive director of the Girls' Schools Association, said aspiring scientists would not give Sir Tim's comments a "second thought". The two groups represent the leading private girls' schools in the UK.  Evening Standard, 24th June 2015
