The 2012 Bosch Technology Horizons Award shortlist has been announced today, and 14 young finalists are in the running to win the top prize.
Participants were asked to submit an innovative response to an engineering-related essay question concerning environmental technology and the impact of engineering on the 2012 Olympics.
The high-quality entries cover a range of topics including suggestions to increase the uptake of renewable energy technology, and observations on how advances in green energy have affected human behaviour.
Peter Fouquet, president of Bosch UK, commented: “Congratulations to all the finalists of this year’s Bosch Technology Horizons Award. This annual event is designed to inspire young people so that they will consider engineering as a viable career path.
“This award allows us to encourage the next generation to share in our vision of applying innovation to business, whilst understanding its beneficial impact on the progress of technology and society.”
The first prize in the 14 to 18 age group is £700. The winner of the 19 to 24 age group will receive £1,000. All finalists will be recognised at an awards ceremony on 17 July at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London.
