The final of this year’s national Technology, Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge took place on Wednesday 5th July at Yamakazi Mazak’s headquarters in Worcester.

Hundreds of students from across the UK submitted either their GCSE, A-Level or BTEC Design and Technology Course Work Projects to be judged by a panel of experts drawn from Industry. The TDI Challenge is split into three categories. There are two age groups; 14-16 and 17-19, with six finalists in each and a third category, a brand new addition to the competition for 2017, for group projects which saw two teams competing in the 17-19 age group.

The winner in the 14-16 category was Dan Kimber from Brighton College, whose project was a stylish Desk Lamp. Dan said of winning the competition “I’m really proud of winning this competition, it was a great experience to be involved in and I really enjoyed seeing all of the other great projects.”

The judges commented on the project saying “Daniel’s project showed the application of modern technology - LED lighting and variety of manufacturing techniques in use in his project.
