TALENTED designers from Clevedon School triumphed over 149 other schools to win a national contest.
Pupils who are part of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) club entered the Beat the Flood competition organised by Practical Action.
The project involved them designing and modelling new housing for a community on a fictitious, flood-affected island.
The students had to show they understood related problems, including access and costs, while also coming up with an idea that would withstand future flooding.
The resulting models were put to the test with a jet from a hose pipe.
