Two pupils from Logie Durno School have won the Grampian final of the Junior Engineer for Britain K’Nex Challenge 2012.

Johan Padmos and Josh Annand came top in the annual competition to provide primary school pupils with an exciting introduction to the world of engineering and technology by asking them to produce a specific design solution and then build it with K’Nex.

Throughout the competition, pupils from P4-6 worked in pairs to complete their models. The initial challenge heats were held at their own school and all were given the opportunity to demonstrate imagination, creativity and ingenuity using the K’Nex kit provided for them. More than four thousand pupils took part in the schools challenge.

It was organised by TechFest-SetPoint across Aberdeen City and Shire, with support from Talisman Energy (UK) Ltd and Wood Group.
