On Friday 13th May, Mrs. Hardman accompanied six Year 7 students to Plymouth University to take part in the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) Faraday Challenge Day. The day gave students the opportunity to research, design and make solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. The students had to be creative and use their own problem solving skills to explore their capabilities as engineers.
The Exmouth Community College team consisted of Eloise Escott, Charlie Forster, Lewie McLauchlin, Alissia Dormer, Effie Preston and Fynn Colvin all of 7BET. They were introduced to the Challenge and told they had to design a new technology that would either help with travel, health, sport or home/leisure. The team chose health and designed a monitor to test for epilepsy. They were given 10 minutes to brainstorm ideas and then were introduced to BBC Micro:bit Touch Develop: this is part of their current curriculum in Computing and so the ECC team were fairly confident at programming as opposed to other schools who had never used Micro:bit before.
The next stage involved students being given ‘Farady Money’ to spend in the Engineering Shop to buy extra kit for their Micro:bit. This included l.e.d. lights, buzzers, crocodile clip wires and stationery. Students were only given 80 ‘Faradays’ each so had to think carefully to make sure they did not over spend! Team ECC bought wires and buzzers so that their epilepsy monitor would sound an alarm. They also bought some fabric and tape so that the device could be worn on the users’ wrist. Help was limited to two student ambassadors and if teams requested too much help they were charged…in Faradays of course! The teams were given time to modify their designs and the day ended with each team pitching their design to the IET panel with a presentation and demonstration. The teachers, who were also allowed to participate, but not compete, presented their ides too!
The ECC design and product was by far the most innovative but unfortunately their pitch let them down. Happily, nobody went home downhearted as they were all given goody packs including pens, stickers and a Bosch water bottle. It was a great day out which encouraged students to think about engineering and technology and it was good to see Exmouth Community College leading the Micro:bit programming.

County & East Devon Champions!
Double Winners in Thrilling Style!!
The Year 10 football team have finished the season in style with two cup final victories. The Devon Cup was the first to be contested against an excellent Torquay Boys Grammar School. Exmouth struggled to get to grips with the game in the first twenty minutes finding themselves 2-0 down. An individual strike from Jack Sparkes reduced the deficit to 2-1 with 10 minutes till half time. Torquay broke away and were awarded a penalty which was scored to leave Exmouth trailing 3-1 at half time. After a tactical change to 4-3-3 Exmouth began the second half on the front foot with Adam Wilkinson, Will Dean and Sam Balbi controlling the game in midfield. Three very quick goals including two penalties put Exmouth 4-3 with Jack Sparkes a constant menace to the back four of Torquay. With ten minutes remaining Torquay scored from a neat finish to even the scores at 4-4. The game looked like it was
heading to extra time until a dramatic finish: Sparkes scored from a magnificent
strike with seconds to go, only for Torquay to score from a corner with the last
kick of the game!! At 5-5 extra time was a tense affair with very few chances, with
both sets of players tiring, Will Dean floated a ball over the back four to allow
Sparkes to lob the goalkeeper from 25 yards and secure a wonderful victory.
The squad completed their double with a 11-3 victory over KIngs in the East Devon Cup.
Mr Taylor would like to congratulate the boys on their attitude and performance which has been superb all season. The whole squad have contributed throughout the cup runs, with many players having to play out of position in the quarter and semi finals. The team have now won the County Cup three times in four years and Exeter and East Devon each year since they joined the College.
