TWO Wrexham youngsters will be joining the jet set after winning the Junior Engineer for Britain K'Nex Challenge.
Megan Thomas and Simon Bentley, both 10, of Ysgol Deiniol Primary School, as well as winning a trophy and lots of K'Nex goodies, will now be jetting off to the United States on an allexpenses-paid trip where they will go behind the scenes at K'Nex HQ.
The duo took on 15 other teams from across Britain and Ireland in the grand final.
Megan and Simon had already beaten hundreds of other budding engineers to win a place in the grand final of the Junior Engineer for Britain K'Nex Challenge at the Old Naval College, Greenwich, London.
Simon and Megan were challenged with building an Olympic stadium.
Organisers of the competition kept the details of the final challenge securely under wraps until moments before the event kicked off.
Then the 32 children working in teams of two had one-and-a-half hours to construct their models.
The competition - now in its sixth year - had been organised to encourage youngsters to consider engineering as a career.
K'Nex spokeswoman Alicia Sachya said: 'This is a fantastic construction-based initiative which is both interactive and hands-on and works to inspire and motivate pupils.
'While all the teams were brilliant, the judges felt Megan and Simon best managed to incorporate imagination and ingenuity into their building skills.'
