Young Engineers of the year Wasim Miah and Jessica Jones of St David’s Catholic College in Cardiff were honoured to be invited to Buckingham Palace to meet HRH The Duke Of York and receive the prestigious Duke of York Rose Bowl award for the most Creative use of Electronics.
Wasim and Jessica spent a little over an hour chatting with the Duke and taking a tour of some of the private rooms in Buckingham Palace. They discussed many topics, including Wasim and Jessica’s fantastic EESW project which won them the title of Young Engineer of the Year.
Jessica was quoted as saying “it was an absolute privilege to meet with the Duke of York for the second time and an honour to receive his award for Creative Use of Technology. I am also very pleased that he took an interest in my future career ambitions”
