Triumph Design Awards 2014-15
Triumph, the largest British motorcycling manufacturer, launched the first ever Triumph Design Awards this year; a competition with the aim of inspiring the Design Engineers of the Future. The competition was open to Sixth Form pupils around the country and the brief was simple: produce a feasible solution to a real world challenge.
Of the 60 entries made nationwide, 3 of our Sixth Form pupils were selected to exhibit their work at the grand final, where they discussed their projects with the judging panel.
Arran Borrill addressed the problem of transport and created a longboard for commuters to use therefore eliminating the reliance on an external energy source; Dhruv Dhanjal created an interactive periodic table to accommodate for various learning styles and James Proudfoot created a product that offered essential storage for tools and components that would be easily accessible during bicycle maintenance.
Out of all 25 finalists, Arran Borrill was awarded ‘Best Response to a Triumph Brief’ and alongside his award received £250 and a week’s work experience with the company.
A fantastic achievement for all 3 boys and we are looking forward to our pupils’ future entries in the now annual event.
