Jakub K in year 13 was recently announced as a finalist in the Best Research category of the TeenTech Awards 2020. We are pleased to announce that on 29 June at the virtual finals, Jakub was announced as the winner of his category for his project 'Diluted white paint and its effect on the temperature under tiles'.
The aim of Jakub's project was to see whether heat reflective white paint on roofs would decrease the temperature under the roof tiles it was painted on, thereby keeping the building cooler. Jakub states that this could have a positive environmental impact as "this can be used as a substitute for air conditioning in a increasingly hot climate." Talking about Jakub's project, head judge for the Best Research category Joyce Martin said that "His project was clearly presented in academic writing style and his online presentation to the judges."
We are immensely proud of Jakub for representing the school with his sustainability focused idea. See Jakub in the finals in the video below at 1:22.
