During Bradford Manufacturing Weeks 2021 (BMW21), schools were invited to participate in a competition to develop a waste recycling unit.
Students were given the challenge of designing and manufacturing their own waste recycling units which would be used at their school or college. The brief detailed how the designs should be practical yet fun; encouraging their peers to recycle instead of throwing away.
The competition judges were captivated by the entries and impressed by how students had immersed themselves into the world of manufacturing to create such innovative solutions.
The winners were presented with their certificates at a small presentation event at each school.
