GSK UK Young Engineers of the Year 2019

Grace Lord, Brendan Miralles, and Aalia Sellar, all aged 14, from Loughborough Schools Foundation have been awarded the GSK UK Young Engineers of the Year title at The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition, for their project entitled “Music Splash”. The students’ project is an app that uses machine learning to analyse music performance and provides feedback to help you improve and work towards grading. The students say it “guides you to instant perfection and is like a music teacher in an app”.

: How does it feel to have won?

Grace Lord, Brendan Miralles, Aalia Sellar: Winning this award feels amazing. We know there are hundreds of students that apply for this and so to win is just a dream come true. We never thought that’d be the case so it’s brilliant and we’re excited to see what’s to come. Our goal for the future is to get our app on the app store so watch this space!
