She entered her project into the National Science and Engineering Competition in June 2013 at The Yorkshire Air Museum where she won the regional heat.

She will now go head-to-head with pupils from across the country when she represents Yorkshire and Humber at the finals of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists And Engineers Fair in Birmingham in March.
Amelia will pitch her design to celebrity judges in a Dragons’ Den process.
