Felsted School's STEM Competition 2021, inspiring children to find ‘practical solutions to pandemic problems’, had such good submissions that they chose five overall winners and a number of runners-up.

Children were asked to think outside the box, using science, technology, engineering or mathematical techniques.

There were 65 entries from a range of schools.

Ava, the Key Stage 1 winner, identified the pandemic could be causing job losses and designed her own ATM which would dispense money to those most in need.

Kamil, the Key Stage 2 winner, designed a social distancing monitor with a flashing light and buzzer to inform wearers going within two and one metre of each other.
