PUPILS aged ten and 11 showed off their construction skills at the local round of a national engineering competition.

The 38 youngsters from four Billericay schools were challenged to plan, design and build a model out of the popular toy K'nex.

Students from Brightside, Buttsbury, Quilters and Sunnymede junior schools formed 19 teams of two at the heat of the K'Nex Junior Engineers Competition event held at The Billericay School.

The eventual winners were Luke Becalick and Jerome Goss from Quilters Junior School with runners-up Zac Williams and Jack Bowen from Buttsbury Junior School.

Luke and Jerome now go forward to county finals and, if successful there, win a place in the national final to be held next month.
