Shake Rattle & Roll Winners

Our Lady’s Grammar, Newry secured themselves an opportunity of a lifetime by winning a trip to the UK Space Agency when they won the ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ schools competition sponsored by Resonate Testing.

The ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ competition, which was endorsed by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA), invited pupils aged 14-16 from across Northern Ireland to demonstrate their STEM skills by designing and building a cantilever structure representative of an Aircraft wing box.

The structure was then set up on the Resonate Testing vibration system and exposed to a 20G vibration environment.  Our Lady’s Grammar structure won by lasting the full test duration – and they were announced as the inaugural ‘Shake, Rattle & Roll’ champions.
