Sixth Form student Abigail Lavercombe was delighted to be announced as the winner of the 2016 Young Innovator Prize, sponsored by Millennium Point Trust. Abigail is currently in the Upper Sixth and was the only female in last week’s final. The competition encourages students to think about the future of the world around them and how science, engineering, manufacturing and technology can have an impact.
The judging panel were impressed by the creativity of Abigail’s ideas, the fact that she has actually built a full size giant greenhouse from bottles and that her passion for civil engineering shone through in her speech. Well done Abi!
