Full steam ahead
Teams from nine Glasgow secondary schools designed and built model ships, before competing against one another in the BAE Systems Naval Ships annual engineering challenge. The ships - made from paper, card, sticky tape and glue - took to the water last week at Strathclyde University's naval architecture department. They underwent tests for speed, survivability, weight and cargo-carrying capacity, and were judged by BAE Systems Naval Ships graduates.
The winning team, John Paul Academy, was presented with a prize by Tom Brady, BAE Systems Naval Ships head of engineering strategy.
BAE Systems is a defence and aerospace company famous for the Euro-fighter aircraft.
