Each year since 1977 we have entered two projects in the Cornwall Schools Technology Project. This scheme is for teams of Secondary School Students who present 20-25 projects at the exhibition in July. This is the history of one such project, which was subsequently entered for The Design Council's School Design Prize.

At St. Austell Sixth Form College Science Projects is one of the options in the general studies programme. In September one group of about ten students and two staff meet to discuss various suggested projects. It is an anxious time because most of the students are fresh from their 11-16 comprehensive and a little lost in their new environment; they are not known to the staff or in many cases to each other.
