Young engineer up for national award
A secondary school pupil has been shortlisted for a prestigious engineering award.
Charles Bruce, of Highgate School, in North Road, has made to the final of the National Science and Engineering Competition 2013.
The 18-year-old made it through the regional heats of the competition with his project to create an electronic scooter.
He said: “The competition has taken me on an amazing journey and I’ve definitely got my sights set on the big prize whilst at The Big Bang Fair in London.
“The best and most important discoveries and inventions are down to science and engineering, and this contest has helped me to realise that I want to be a part of that in the future.”
He will now go onto the national final at The Big Bang Fair next year, where he will be in with a chance of being crowned UK Young Engineer of the Year.
The competition aims to find the best young scientists and engineers from around the county from the age of 11 to 18.
