The winning team designed and built a solar chip prototype that can charge a mobile phone. This was a fantastic project that the judges thought demonstrated exceptional engineering aptitude at a young age. They also commented that the prototype was an engineering concept that would be highly desirable on the market. Well done to these brilliant Young Engineers!
