Designers Win Aluminium Competition

Six young designers are announced as winners of the first Alu D&T Challenge, a challenge that provides schools with resources to educate children about the importance of sustainable design and the role aluminium can play.

Launched in September 2012 by the Aluminium Federation and the Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organization, the challenge provides lesson plans, notes and design challenges in four categories – transport, built environment, packaging and technology.

The competition, aimed at 11 – 14 year olds, saw 75 schools participating and 670 entries received.

“The quality and sheer creativity involved in the entries was extremely impressive, with many of the pupils going to great lengths to prepare their designs”, says competition judge Michael Stacey of Nottingham University.
