An exciting Outreach event took place at Godolphin on Wednesday. 120 girls from seven different schools participated in The Great Godolphin Egg Race 2019. We were particularly pleased to welcome girls from Whiteparish All Saints Primary School to the competition for the first time. The girls worked in teams to build a contraption that would enable a golf ball to smash an egg, adhering to a strict set of criteria laid down by the Godolphin Science and Technology departments. In just over an hour every team managed to produce an impressive-looking device from paper straws, paper and a cardboard tube. There was great excitement during the all-important testing of the structures with cheers when the eggs cracked and consolatory ‘ahhs’ when they didn’t. On this occasion a team from Cheam School were victorious, taking the coveted shield and the largest chocolate eggs back to Berkshire. One of the Farleigh School teams came second, with a team from Godolphin Prep coming a respectable third. With 29 teams in total, this was a fantastic achievement for our visitors.
