Innovating for the future, Science Competition Winners Announced

Posted on: 16/04/2021

As part of British Science Week, we invited our Key Stage 3 students to produce a poster focused upon the theme of 'Innovating for the future'.

We were delighted that all four of our secondary schools provided entries which ranged from the dystopian to the life-affirming.

In keeping with the judging criteria provided by the British Science Association, the following entries were all ‘Highly Commended’:

For ‘Creativity in approach’, Jack Blake from Croxley Danes School, whose vision of a robot remembering the world we inhabit now (through a button on its palm) reminds us to be careful what we might wish for when we innovate.

For ‘Content’, Vinuya Gnanasekaram from Onslow St Audrey’s School whose Navigation Glass seeks to address equality of access when innovating for the future.

For ‘Effective Communication’, Aditi Mehta from St Clement Danes School, Claudie Bieda from Croxley Danes School and Carmela Ohanians from Chancellor’s School. Each of the girls provided clear and focused explanations of how:

  1. piezoelectric crystals might support the generation of electricity
  2. the ‘Aqua Nator 3000’ might support plant life
  3. AI may be used to support human communication across the globe

And the overall winner is Jack Blake for his eye-catching and rather terrifying vision for the future.
