The Davidson Inventors Challenge 2021 comes to an end and we would love
you to join us at the Final and Awards Ceremony on Friday 28 May, 3 pm-5.45
pm BST. This event will be hosted by the University of Cambridge, Department
of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, in collaboration with the
Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and The Association of Science
Technology and Innovation (ASTI) from Malaysia. With guests of honour MP
Nadhim Zahawi, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for COVID-19 Vaccine
Deployment, the IChemE President, Professor Stephen Richardson, and our
alumna Dr Rachel Cooke.
Over the last few months, over 150 Year 9-12 students from over 40 schools across
the UK registered for this competition and have been working on a project in their
respective teams. Having researched sustainable development goals (SDGs), the
students selected a challenge/problem of their choice to work on and looked for a
potential innovative and sustainable solution.
We have now selected the best 4 finalist teams to present their findings, inventions
and solutions to the department, the DIC organising team, our department and a
wider audience of graduates working in industry.
The following are our four finalist student teams who will be presenting on the day:
AdMeliora (Year 12, The Tiffin Girls school, Kingston upon Thames)
Geobetter (Year 11, Sacred Heart High School, Newcastle upon Tyne)
Hydroponics (Year 12, Brighton College, Brighton)
SCEEM (Year 12, South Hampstead High School, London)
This is a fantastic opportunity for all the participating students and
schools, and a general audience interested in science and engineering to watch the
project presentations by our finalist student teams and the contributions from our
distinguished guests! See the event poster and the speaker bios attached.
We will also be talking about chemical engineering, how it relates to Sustainable
Development Goals, and what chemical engineers are doing to tackle the biggest
global challenges in energy and environment, sustainability and healthcare.
