Primary Engineering Awards winner
Congratulations to Aiden Hamper who was been recognised by the Primary Engineering Awards. Last year, children submitted designs for new inventions to a competition seeking to inspire budding engineers. Aiden invented a new type of bin and described it as follows:
Are you sick and tired of your bin filling up too fast? Well, there is now a solution! Try the Double Bin 3000. It will erase your troubles and make your bin less full. By two folding platforms, this bin compacts your rubbish making more room for more rubbish to go in.
Aiden submitted a technical diagram of his design and a step by step explanation of how it works. The judges were so impressed they awarded him the grade of Highly Commended in their category for the South region and have sent him a certificate and medal. He was the only pupil at Redlands to be recognised this year. A huge congratulations to Aiden!
