The competition has 3 categories: innovation, investigation and invention. Primary and secondary schools can get involved and finalists are invited to the annual awards event which is run in a dragons’ den style format.
The students will be filmed in advance in school to show the detail of the project. This is screened before the students take to the stage to describe their creation and dragons quiz the youngsters on their initiative. Different panels of dragons will judge the varying categories or year groups and award trophies and experience prizes to the students and schools.
Graham Heritage, Managing Director, said “We have some great staff in production, manufacturing and engineering but we always need more of the right talent and we believe there’s great value in developing this talent at an early age. Megger are tremendously proud to be sponsors of the annual KM Bright Spark Awards”.
Megger welcomed the winners of the Megger Experience day from last year Awards. The Students from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Faversham enjoyed a day with our engineers and production teams.
