After six months of hard work, innovation, creativity and team working, all the GEC teams have been waiting excitedly to hear which team from the thirty-one schools internationally would be chosen by the GEC judges. The judging team had a very difficult task, and based their shortlisting and final decisions on a number of criteria, including profitability, quality of work and final report quality. They also took feedback from the project coordinator Chloe Farrant and looked at the online work and collaboration evident in the team's Sharepoint site and Yammer groups. It was a very difficult decision!
In the end, from the final shortlisted teams, here are the results:
1st place : R N Podar- Bookmarks
2nd place: St Hilda’s- Treehouse Project
3rd place: Birmingham Covington- ZINC ALIKE-
4 highly commended : Julio Verne - Pencil Toppers
5 commended : Notre Dame - Recycled products
Congratulations to RN Podar's Bookmarks team, who are this year's overall winner!
Look out for pictures from their excellent portfolio as well as from the skype call that Mr Bishop held to inform them of thir winning team this afternoon.
The winning team can now look forward to an exciting trip to Seattle next month, where they will be congratulated by Anthony Salcito, VP of Education for Microsoft, at the prestigious E2 conference.
