Video entries from students across Year 4 – Year 12 were full of innovative ideas, exceptional experiments and intriguing inventions. It was a very difficult decision for the judges, however, after much deliberation 7 entries were selected to receive top prizes for their school.
These prizes included money to supersize STEM subjects in school, a meeting with one of the engineers featured in the pack, some of whom support the This is Engineering campaign to promote engineering careers, alongside 30 special commendation prizes for individual entries.
The top prize of £500 to supersize STEM subjects in school and a meeting with one of the engineers featured in the project was awarded to Maya Mouzouris Marzetti in Year 8, from Park House School in Newbury. The judges were incredibly impressed by her climate saving ideas and research as well as her passionate presenting skills.
The third place, of a £100 schools prize and a meeting with an engineer was awarded to Megan Waterhouse in Year 5 from Manor House School in Leatherhead. The judges really enjoyed hearing about Megan’s personal connection to engineering, that stemmed from building a greenhouse with her grandad.
The remaining finalists included Harry Roberts from Dame Alice Owen’s School in Potters Bar, Ali Qureshi from Wirral Grammar School for Boys in Bebington, Oliver Ruddock from the Royal Hospital School in Suffolk and Aarya Kumar, Nishi Panwar, Adhyavi Gupta, Dalola Kajopaye, Kimi Tokala, Erin Samaranayaka and Mimi Ka-iong Gu from Withington Girls’ School in Manchester. Each school has won a virtual meeting with one of the inspiring engineers featured in the project as well as an individual commendation prize.
