Global Vaccine Distribution competition winner
This term, Sixth Form student, Annabel came first in the prestigious New York Junior Science Academy challenge on Global Vaccine Distribution. The Junior Academy is a project-based learning program for students interested in creating solutions to real-world problems. Annabel and her four teammates participated in challenges across a 10-week period where they formed international teams and worked with STEM experts, who mentored them as they designed innovative solutions to society’s toughest challenges.
Each team could pick any country to base their solutions on, with Annabel and her team choosing Indonesia for its geographical complexities. Annabel’s comprehensive presentation demonstrated how she had used CAD modelling and spatial data analysis to consider the use of drones in vaccine distribution. To commemorate this fantastic achievement, the winning team will now present their solution at this year’s Global STEM Alliance Virtual Summit. Congratulations to Annabel for this brilliant accomplishment.
