Talented pupils from Harpenden schools are celebrating after receiving an award in a prestigious national science and engineering competition.

Sir John Lawes School pupil, Toran Sharma and Oakgrove School pupil Kai Diep received the Google Creative Technology Award at The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair, the UK’s largest celebration of science and engineering for young people.

Their project, which saw them develop interactive computing hardware projects for use in schools, used Arduino Uno and Raspberry Pi computing hardware to make projects that are interactive and easy to replicate by students.

At the Fair, Toran and Kai’s shortlisted entry was showcased to over 75,000 visitors before going face-to-face with a panel of top judges in a Dragons’ Den style pitch process.

As well as receiving £500 they also win the opportunity to spend time at Google's offices in London.
