Quadcopter success for Ysgol Bryn Alyn pupils

Secondary school students in Wrexham have been crowned the regional winners of a quadcopter competition.

Before the summer a group from Ysgol Bryn Alyn entered the Raytheon Technology’s Quadcopter Challenge

They produced a presentation video of their idea of using quadcopters for removing plastic waste from the seas, which put them through to the regional finals held at Wrexham Glyndwr University.

Along with four other schools from North Wales, the Ysgol Bryn Alyn team spent a day learning how to build a quadcopter.

They have also spent the last month adapting their design in line with their original plans.

On Wednesday 9 November they returned to Wrexham Glyndwr University where they were judged on their design by Raytheon managers.

They presented on how they went about modifying their design and then were put through their paces on a quadcopter course.

The team were selected by the judges as regional winners and will go on to the national finals at RAF Cranwell, home to the Royal Air Force College.
