We are happy to announce the prizes awarded were:

Lady Eleanor Holles School
– An A6 calendar where you scratch off each day to reveal a fun design fact.

The St Michael Steiner School
The Copper Line
– A science kit, where a battery, magnets and copper wire produce electromagnetic waves to propel a ‘train’ through a ‘tunnel’. 

After the prize giving, Peter Ayres from Beep Studio talked to students about his journey to becoming a designer and then lead the group in a fast paced workshop exploring how they can use drawing to communicate their product ideas.

Tea and cake made the perfect end of a fun afternoon celebrating great designs.

Well done teams!
