The Next Big Thing makes a Bigger Bang!

Mr Tuggey took a team of Year 10 students to this event, to present their TêteTec project

Yesterday we took the 2016 year 10 Siemens Next Big Thing team to the Big Bang Fair South East in Sussex where they extended to five years our run of winning prizes.

With their TêteTec project, they won the Glaxo Smith Kline Award for Healthcare, coincidentally one of the sponsored prizes won by last year's team.

They went beyond last year's success, however, in winning the whole competition in their class, making them the Big Bang UK Young Engineers of the Year for the South East (Intermediate class). This also means that they have been selected as finalists for the national Big Bang Young Scientists and Engineers Competition 2016/17 to be held in Birmingham next March.

The combined prize money was £90. The team are: Jasmine; Frances; Shisam; Ruqaiya; Hana; Brianna; Victoria; Anosh
