Lower Sixth student Surya Vijayanand has been named a winner in this year’s Big Bang Competition.

Surya, who hopes to start a new robotics club alongside fellow student Dameer Ahmed, created a model of a human hand (including a code to operate its individual fingers) as part of his EPQ project.

Surya has been awarded a place at the 62nd London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF), from 28 July to 11 August 2021, and enjoy a 15-day residential programme at Imperial College London, featuring lectures from top scientists and visits to top UK science departments and institutions.

It’s a wonderful achievement for Surya, especially as he has his sights set on Imperial to do Design Engineering when he leaves Trinity.

On winning, Surya thanked his teacher, Ms Manisier: “I can’t thank you enough for all the opportunities you have offered me and cannot wait! The time you made for the practice interview was hugely helpful and your feedback gave me confidence.  I am very excited for the 15 day residential programme. I can’t wait to visit and meet the professors and other students from across the world who have also won a place”.

Congratulations, Surya!
