A sustainable bio-degradable bottle for cold liquids.
The Innovators and their BIG idea
Jess Nicholson and Freda Prak were Year 10 students at Bethlehem College when they came up with the idea for a sustainable biodegradable bottle for cold liquids. They were thrilled and proud to be announced the winners of the YiA Junior category and got to attend the 2018 YiA Awards Evening, which they found to be quite a big event which made them feel special.
The Internship and what’sup for the future
During their internship at Locus Research the girls learnt about how to collect relevant information and data through to making a prototype. Having experienced entering YiA the girls felt that the main takeaway for them was the importance of learning how to think ‘outside the square’ and that students who had an idea they are passionate about developing further should seriously consider entering YiA.
