Vallis First School/Oakfield School/Frome Community College

 

I left Frome Community College in July 2016 after achieving four A*’s at A level in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science. I am nearing the end of my first year at the University of Southampton where I am studying for a master’s degree in Electronic Engineering with Computer Systems.

 

I have recently been awarded the Diamond Jubilee Scholarship by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) sponsored by BT and have also been selected for an internship with the iSolutions Enterprise Systems Development team at the university.

 

One of my greatest achievements so far is the Plant Notes project I co-founded, Plant Notes is a system allowing anyone looking for a simple way to automate their plant’s environment from anywhere around the world via the internet. The system is fully scalable – from just a few plants being monitored and their environments adjusted to many thousands across a large area of land.

 

The project won awards at The PA Consulting Raspberry Pi competition, at the National Science and Engineering Competition as part of the Big Bang Fair 2015 and were runners up at the Making Business Happen awards 2015.
