The College's engineers attended the Big Bang event in Exeter to showcase more than 100 hours of work on their STEM projects.
Mr Barenskie, the College's STEM co-ordinator, wrote about the students' day at the Big Bang in Exeter on 29 June.
" Stoke Damerel Community College sent its biggest group of engineering competitors to date, 17 students from Key Stage 4 and 5, having put over 100 combined hours into their projects were ready to compete.
The two projects comprised a safety robot that lifts masses up and down warship stairs and a zoo enclosure design and scale model.
Students from both groups have received weekly support from Babcock STEM ambassadors who have been instrumental to our success.
We are very pleased that our zoo enclosure has won the competition and will now go through to the national stage in Birmingham this December.
Our stair robot caught the attention of the assessors and will be presented at Babcock's safety conference this year with the aim of turning it into a viable product.
This is such a huge achievement for our students at their first competition of this calibre. Go Stoke STEM! "
