Young Imagineers Competition Success for Aamena

Congratulations to Aamena in Year 9 who achieved the Highly Commended 2nd place award at the Young Imagineers 2019 competition held in November at the Science Museum. Young Imagineers, presented by Equinor, celebrates the UK’s most creative young minds in STEM. This years competition attracted entries from over 2,700 young people from across the UK who shared their ideas of inventions that would make tomorrow’s world a better place.

Aamena’s invention was called Dementia Friend, a personalised healthcare device to improve the lives of people living with dementia and those who care for them – a friend to make the world a lot less intimidating. Her entry was one of only 10 entries to be selected by the judging panel to be presented at the Science Museum. There were some very high-quality inventions and presentations and Aamena was delighted to have received the highly commended 2nd place award. The judging panel consisted of TV presenter Konnie Huq, author Dr Barry Fitzgerald, a superhero scientist Lopa Patel, a technology entrepreneur and investor and Sophie Banham a representative from Equinor who designs offshore wind farms.

An incredible achievement Aamena, well done!
