MY IDEA WON
I RECENTLY won a national science, technology, engineering and maths competition.
It should be healthier to walk to school than go in the car, right?
Imagine a connected world where we can all make sense of our planet. That would make ‘Perfect Sense’ and that was the name for my project in the Youth Industrial Strategy Competition.
Getting involved has been one of the best things I have ever done!
I started with a passion and a determination to allow everyone to breathe healthier air on the way to school. Real-life scientists and engineers have now also shown a commitment and excitement to my project.
Working with a team of nano-scientists from Graphene@Manchester has been an amazing experience with our shared belief in the project. Responding to comments from the Youth Industrial Strategy Competition judges has also really helped me to improve on ideas.
Virtual judging was an experience in itself and a great boost for my confidence in speaking in front of a camera, as well as my writing skills to share the main aims of my project in a brief way.
