Five Year 12 Tor Bridge students recently enjoyed success at the Engineering Education Scheme (EES) finals held at Plymouth University. 

The team, comprising Kane Mortimore, Josiah Alridge, Ed Maben, Ben Harrison and Tyler Ridges and working in partnership with the Royal Navy have spent most of this year preparing for the event as part of a larger engineering project. Their challenge, set by the Navy, had been to design and build a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) to inspect the hulls of Navy ships was an extremely challenging however despite several difficult technological setbacks the team managed to produce a working prototype on the day, HMS Abyss.
 
The team spent a challenging day creating a Display of their project and being quizzed on the engineering challenges creating their prototype presented. At the final presentations the team from Tor Bridge High were rated as one of the best projects the judging panel had ever seen at the competition and along with two other teams were almost inseparable when it came to final scoring. Unfortunately when it did come down to final totals the team was placed second by a single point. This still represents a fantastic achievement and all the staff and students here at Tor Bridge would like to congratulate them on their success. Well done.
