SCHOOLGIRL INVENTOR CROWNED UK JUNIOR ENGINEER OF THE YEAR
A clever schoolgirl has won a national engineering competition after wowing judges with her eco-friendly invention. Lisa Davies invented Xorbit, a car dehumidifier with a difference, to enter into an annual science, technology, engineering and maths contest at Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls last year. And on 17th March, the 14-year-old from Abergavenny beat around 200 finalists from across the UK to become Junior Engineer of the Year at the Big Bang Fair, hosted at Birmingham’s NEC. It is the second year running that girls from HMSG have won the STEM exhibition’s coveted title, along with the £1,000 cash prize.
