Tomorrow's engineers win awards and plaudits


ENGINEERING PROFESSIONALS of the future were rewarded at the Young Engineers national celebration and awards evening last week.

The event capped a full day of challenging activity for nearly 100 students aged between 9 and 18 and their teachers at the Old Naval College in Greenwich, London.

Teams from around 20 schools across the UK presented and demonstrated project work carried out over the year and then took part in a 'jewel heist' robot vehicle challenge among the Millennium Jewel Collection at Greenwich.

Best senior club of the year, for students between 11 and 18 years old, went to Blythe Bridge School in Staffordshire, a club backed proudly by local plant manufacturer JCB. Along with a cash prize for the school, club members will be taken on an all expenses paid field trip to France organised by Lloyds' Register.

Junior club of the year went to the All Saints Junior School in Hastings, East Sussex. Best new club was won by the Herts & Essex Girls School and best supporting club leader was Julian McDermott of St Birinus School, Oxfordshire.
