David Davis meets regional finalists at science and engineering fair


David Davis MP met with two students from East Riding who are finalists at this years’ Big Bang Young Science and Engineering Fair.

Peter Greenman (18) a student at Cottingham High School and Jenny Morris (17) who is studying at Hymers College were both representing the region with their science projects.

The Big Bang Fair is the UK’s biggest single celebration of science and engineering open to the public, over the course of three days 60,000 people will visit the exhibition and see Peter and Jenny’s projects.

David Davis said of the event;

“The Big Bang Fair is an inspiration to all students across  the UK.  At a time when technology, science and engineering are shaping our future, Peter and Jenny’s projects are of great importance. 

Both Peter and Jenny’s work tackle challenging technological and practical issues.  Jenny’s electronic sensors have a vast range of future applications, especially as mobile technology is playing a greater role in all our lives.  Peter’s project helps explain the structure of drug type molecules using techniques that improve our understanding of complex biological systems.  

I spent a great deal of time chatting with both Peter and Jenny and was enormously impressed with their natural ability, interest in science and enthusiasm. I wish them the best of success for the competition and for their future careers.”
