1000 Point Challenge!

Welcome to your 1000 Point Challenge!

As a UTC, you know we like to do things a little bit differently, even in these unusual times. Running throughout April, the way you are set and complete some of your academic work is going to change.  We are setting you an epic STEM challenge that starts on Wednesday 1st April and runs until Thursday 30th April. This challenge will force you to think hard, encourage you to develop your independent learning skills and keep your brain running.

On Wednesday 1st April, you will be sent a link to three challenge mats relevant to your year group. Each activity on each mat has a points score. Complete the activities to score points! It’s that simple.

You will be in competition with other students in Year 10 and Year 12 to see who can earn the most points. The prizes will be awarded for individual achievements, mentor group achievements and the coveted Year Group Award – can Year 10 beat the Year 12 points score? We can’t wait to celebrate your successes in a special Celebration Assembly when we get back to school.  

In addition, there will be surprise Sponsor Challenges which are a great opportunity for you to flex your industry-relevant skills (and earn more points!). Keep an eye on your emails for these surprise Sponsor Challenges – the best 5 responses in each year group will be sent to the Sponsor who set the challenge. This is a great opportunity to impress.

Let the challenge begin: may the points be ever in your favour!
