A PUPIL from St Augustine’s Catholic School scooped a top prize at The Big Bang Fair last week.
Adam Lowde, aged 16, was honoured with the JCB Innovation Award after impressing a panel of judges with his ‘Rustic Chair’ project.
When designing, his intention was to allow the natural beauty of the material to shine through and show how effective and reliable it can be to source materials in the UK.
The Innovation Award, sponsored by manufactures JCB, is awarded to the person who has displayed innovation in any engineering field.
For his achievements Adam has also been invited to do work experience at JCB’s World Headquarters.
Hilary Leevers, chief executive of Engineering UK, which organises The Big Bang, said: “Huge congratulations to Adam whose innovative project stood out for special recognition.”
The annual competition recognises and rewards young people for their hard work.
