TeenTech Winners at Buckingham Palace

LtoR: Dr Gould, Isabel Robinson, Beatrice Pilgrim, Imogen Peterson and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York

Imogen Peterson, Beatrice Pilgrim and Isabel Robinson, previously announced as winners of the People’s Choice Award at the TeenTech national final in June, were at Buckingham Palace last month to receive their award from Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

They designed a piece of wearable technology that can detect UV radiation. It tells the wearer when to apply more sun cream or alternatively when to go outside.  The ‘Light Ray’ is intended to help prevent sunburn as well as reduce the growing problem of people not receiving enough Vitamin D.

Congratulations to all three girls, now hard at work in our Lower Sixth!
