A huge well done to this year’s winning teams!

Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Llangynwyd - Team Enterprise Winners 2018.

Bryn Celynnog Comprehensive School - People’s Choice Winners 2018.

For the past 3 years Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales has run a competition for students undertaking the Museum’s Welsh Baccalaureate product challenge for Enterprise & Employability (National/Foundation).

The Challenge Brief is to create an innovative product for the Museum shop, which reflects the objects and collections across the 7 Museum sites.

Students have the opportunity to showcase their completed work at a competition event.

This year’s event took place in the newly opened Atrium at St Fagans National History Museum. Pupils presented their work to a panel of judges. They also set up displays and communicated their product to members of the public visiting the Museum.

All the pupils said they would recommend the challenge to others. Pupils described key skills developed as a result; from teamwork and thinking to presentation and communication.

 

“Fy hoff rhan oedd gweld beth oedd y cyhoedd yn meddwl am ein cynnyrch a clywed beth oedd ei farn am y cynnyrch”

“My favourite part was working as a team and creating a product that we really enjoyed”

“To answer the questions in the pitch required quick thinking skills.”

Pupil feedback

 

Students from Cardiff & Vale College helped to run the event as part of their Advanced Community Challenge. They were involved in planning and leading on key aspects of the day; from logistics and supporting pupils, to organising and presenting the People’s Choice Award which represented the visitor’s vote.

“I believe it was a great experience as you interact with all different types of people and different ages.”

Helena Vitoria, CAVC student

 

“Once again, the National Museum competition proved a resounding success.”

Sara Davies, Swyddog Bagloriaeth Cymru CA4 Cenedlaethol/Sylfaen | KS4 National/Foundation Welsh Baccalaureate Officer
