V&A Dundee – Schools Design Challenge

We’re absolutely delighted that one of our S1 teams in the Art Department has been selected as one of the ‘Top Ten’ to take part in the next stage of the V&A Schools’ Design Challenge on Wednesday 20 January 2016.

Over 1000 pupils took part in the challenge, comprising of 250 teams from both Angus and Dundee. The team will be paired with a professional designer, as well as working with a film maker in school at a later date to create a film. These films and their work will be displayed in a public exhibition in the Overgate Centre created by the V&A Museum of Design Dundee.

The team members from S1 are Isla Gray, Abbie Smith, Jenna Archibald and Muireann Bradford. They will be accompanied by their Art teacher Mr Beaver. The girls winning idea is to design a friendship club within the school.
