Case Study

Jennifer

Achieved A*A*A B in A Level Biology, Chemistry Maths and EPQ. 

Now studying: Mechanical Engineering at Newcastle University. 

Previous school: Home schooled. 

Jennifer was announced as the winner of the Talent 2030 National Engineering Competition for Girls in 2016 for her project where she sought to develop cost effective ways of producing 3D printed prosthetic limbs.

Run by the National Centre for Universities and Business, Talent 2030 is an ambitious campaign to bring female talent into engineering and manufacturing industries. The competition, which is sponsored by Rolls-Royce, EDF Energy, PepsiCo and Centrica, asks girls to explore engineering solutions to twenty-first century problems.

Awarding prizes of £1,000 and a mentor for winners and £100 for runners-up, the competition also invites all shortlisted entrants to the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham to exhibit their ideas and receive their certificates and prizes.

I felt really happy to win the award. I'm so grateful for Talent 2030 running the competition as I would never have had this amazing opportunity to exhibit my project at the Big Bang Fair.

I felt honoured that they found my project interesting and selected me as the winner.
