In a remarkable feat of knowledge and creativity, students from ICS London have won £1000 to use on science resources thanks to their contribution to this year's Endeavour Competition Challenge KS3 Kew the question - Sustainability. The annual competition, organised by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, aims to foster environmental consciousness and sustainable thinking among young minds. This year, ICS London's team showcased their exceptional abilities, leaving an indelible mark on the journey towards a greener future.

Kew the Question Sustainability Challenge, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, invites students from around the globe to delve into critical environmental issues and propose innovative solutions. This year's challenge focused on the theme of sustainability, prompting participants to explore ways to mitigate the ecological impact of human activities and create a more harmonious relationship between society and the environment.

The judges were highly impressed with the ICS London team's well-rounded approach and their ability to think beyond conventional boundaries. 

"Your video provides a clear answer to the question, "What's the most important thing we can do to ensure everyone can buy and use things sustainably?" Your presentation skills are excellent, displaying confidence, and your use of rhetorical techniques to effectively convey your message. Filming in-situ adds interest and context to your presentation, demonstrating the thought and forward-planning that must have gone into this. Well done!" was the feedback provided by this year's judges.

The success of ICS London students in the Kew the Question Sustainability Challenge celebrates their exceptional intellect, passion, and dedication to creating a more sustainable future. Their innovative project demonstrated a deep understanding of the intricate relationship between humans and the environment, offering practical solutions to address the pressing challenges of urban sustainability.

We are incredibly proud of our KS3 students' achievements and are grateful to this year's judges for awarding us with £1000 to be spent on valuable science resources. 

ICS London students: keep up the good work!
