On July 26th, 10 talented prospective engineers completed a Summer Challenge. They learned about the UCL departments of Chemical Engineering and Biochemical Engineering, and about the Institute of Making. They learned about fuel cells, fluorescent algae and catalysts, among other things, and they also saw how chemical engineers contribute to producing pharmaceuticals. Inspired by nature, the 10 students then successfully completed an individual project and presented enthusiastically their refreshing ideas. We wish these young scientists the best of luck for their future career, and we hope to see them in our classrooms in 2017.
