Reece Mistry wins place on prestigious STEM mentoring scheme
On Friday 28 October, Year 12 student Reece Mistry was one of sixteen young STEM hopefuls who attended a mentoring day at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, London.
The students aged between 16 and 19 are finalists in the 2016 -2017 Young Engineer for Britain programme. Intense competition from students across the UK meant the selected few had to wow the selection panel with their project idea before being offered one of the coveted places.
We are extremely proud of Reece and his superb achievement in gaining this 6 months scholarship at the National Physics Laboratory in London. This scholarship will allow him to develop his prototype of a bionic Prosthetic hand for children. Reece has worked with the STEM club at Lutterworth College and the staff in the Science & Technology department to put his proposal together.
