Success at the 2018 KM Bright Sparks Awards

Two of our students, Kevin John and Zubair Asim, have scooped the winner’s prize of £500 at this year’s KM Bright Spark Awards!  They received the prize for their work so far on the development of an early detection system for earthquakes, which they described in a talk and then faced questions on from a panel of judges.  The boys’ thorough research and clear communication impressed both judges and audience, and let them on to scoop the top spot.

This was not the only success of the morning though, as another project from The Langton received recognition in the form of some extra funding.  Project StairGen has seen the development of a step that can harness energy in the form of electricity when people walk upstairs, and the team of five students impressed the judges so much that they were awarded an additional £250 in funding to continue and develop the project.

All in all, a very good morning for our students and we send them our congratulations.
